Speaking 7/13/13 at Autism Society of America annual conference in Pittsburgh

(2) Funding Autism Treatment Using Medicaid Funds In Pennsylvania

Description: Learn about Federal and State laws regarding EPSDT funding in Pennsylvania that control access to funding for Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (BHRS, often misleadingly called “wraparound services” in Pennsylvania). Access to EPSDT funding for BHRS is a Civil Right for children with disabilities but formidable barriers to it have been created and maintained. Learn how to overcome obstacles to EPSDT funding, regardless of family income and private insurance status.

Range of Life Span:  All Ages

Target Audience:  Parents/Family Members, Self Advocates
