Texas Advocacy Webinar: Accessing ABA through Medicaid

November 18, 2022 at 12:00 pm - November 18, 2022 at 1:30 pm
Online Event

Friday, November 18, 2022 at 12:00p.m. - 1:30p.m. Central Time


Join Autism Speaks staff and autism community leaders as we answer your questions on Texas' new ABA benefit and walk you through the process of getting ABA services through the state Medicaid program.

After years of advocacy, coverage for Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is now available for children with autism in Texas who rely on Medicaid for healthcare coverage.

Earlier this year, the state Medicaid program launched Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy as a covered service for enrolled-children under age 21 and diagnosed with autism. While the roll-out of this ABA benefit is a giant step forward, the current challenge is making sure this benefit is accessible and used by eligible Texans.
