Medi-Cal will now cover the cost of ABA therapy for families who previously couldn’t afford it or were paying for it out of pocket. This is an exciting change as studies have shown that ABA has produced improvements in relationships, play, school performance and communications.
Rob Haupt, AST’s Head of Contracts and Partnerships, is committed to helping LA’s Medi-Cal families navigate the Medi-Cal process and gain access to the services they need. “We have been working hard to create a program we can offer to families who are now able to obtain ABA services through their Medi-Cal plan.”
New information about Medi-Cal’s coverage of autism services continues to unfold. For the latest updates, watch our video series on Medi-Cal and read the full press release about services to Medi-Cal families.
