Autism Support Program:
The Autism Support Program is administered by Magellan through a contract with the Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS). This program was launched April 1, 2014. It provides Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services to eligible children.
For a child to be eligible, the following requirements must be met:
- Children under the age of 9 at time of application.
- An Autism diagnosis is provided by a child psychiatrist, developmental pediatrician or clinical psychologist. Diagnosis was given within 24 months of the date of the application.
- The child does not qualify for Medicaid coverage or coverage under a commercial insurance plan.
- Meets specified Federal Poverty Level income guidelines (under 400% FPL)
New resources are now available for caregivers with children with autism!

All families are urged to contact a provider in your area to discuss this fantastic opportunity to obtain ABA by highly trained professionals, even if you are skeptical of meeting the program requirements.
