Medicaid’s EPSDT Benefit for Kids Under 21: The Greatest Treatment Funding Secret Ever

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 701

The presenter will discuss how his BHRS in a Wraparound Cup® model of behavioral health rehabilitation services has been successful in treating children with autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, and other disabling conditions that are becoming increasingly diagnosed in young people. Based on treatment outcome studies conducted by independent researchers at four educational institutions since 2007, a statistically significant association was found in children between the ages of 2 and 21 receiving this treatment model and reduction in physical aggression, safety deficits, communication and socialization deficits, and noncompliance with adult prompts. Remarkably, funding for this treatment is available in all 50 states via Medicaid — and in 33 states (including New York), regardless of family income! The speaker will discuss his 20 years of work with children in this regard, funded entirely by the EPSDT mandate of the Medicaid Act. Challenges presented by managed care, state and county governments, and private insurance carriers will be described, along with solutions that have been successfully implemented since 1996.

Eligible for 1.0 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing
