As of September 15, 2014, as many as 75,000 primarily low-income California children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) became eligible for covering behavioral health treatment, such as applied behavior analysis (ABA), for individuals with autism up to age 21.

Hopefully, the possibility of access to treatment will result in more accurate diagnosis and referral. What is known is that today less than 10% of the affected children receive behavioral health treatment, which is available through the Regional Center system only for the most severely impacted children. This new benefit makes the treatment available to the other 90% of California’s children covered by Medi-Cal who are struggling with ASD.

California is the first state to implement a federal directive to step up Medicaid coverage for children with autism.
