Document Clarifies Medicaid Coverage for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders

The Center for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) recently published a five-page informational bulletin, “Clarification of Medicaid Coverage of Services to Children with Autism,” which is found at: http://www.medicaid.gov/Federal-Policy-Guidance/Downloads/CIB-07-07-14.pdf. The document discusses preventative and diagnostic services, as well as therapy services. It’s technical, but it includes a way to ask questions about these services: AutismServicesQuestions@cms.hhs.gov.
