This program was presented at the 2012 Annual Convention of the Pennsylvania Psychological Association and describes the Federal and State laws governing Medicaid and its use by schools to fund school-based mental health treatment programs in all 50 states.
This 2-page paper explains how Federal regulations give disabled children in all 50 states enforceable rights to access EPSDT funding for the treatment of their mental illness symptoms. This includes symptoms of Autism and ADHD regardless of the child’s diagnosis. In 36 states, this funding is available regardless of family income. The list of these states appears in the Resources for Parents tab.
This program covers the EPSDT mandate and how Steve Kossor and the Institute for Behavior Change have been utilizing its resources since 1997. The program addresses the obstacles and obstructions placed in the paths of children who need and are entitled to EPSDT funding for the treatment of their mental illness symptoms, including the use of the Office for Civil Rights. The complete set of notes pages from the presentation is available by contacting the author at firstname.lastname@example.org
