Learn about Michigan’s proposed new Medicaid Benefit Plan for children with Autism

Michigan is creating a new benefit for children with autism who are covered by Medicaid. The new plan is expected to expand greatly the available services for children with the condition.  The forum is your opportunity to learn about the plan. There are specific guidelines for the diagnosis and evaluation of the condition, as well as the provision of services, that parents will want to know. Meet the MCCMH Autism Benefits Administrator, learn the details, and ask questions about the new benefit before it becomes available in January.
