Utah has an autism waiver for Medicaid that allows families to qualify a child for autism for Medicaid (and behavior services), even if the family income does not meet the typical Medicaid criteria. An open enrollment period will be held November 17th to December 7th, 2014. During the open enrollment period we will accept applications online, by mail, or via fax. The application can be found online at http://health.utah.gov/autismwaiver. The application can be completed online or printed and completed. Should you need to have a paper copy mailed to you, please contact us as soon as possible.
Please note that even if you have previously submitted an application, you must submit another application to be eligible for this open enrollment period.
If the number of applicants exceeds the number of available openings, the enrollees will be selected through a randomized process. Waiver openings are assigned based on geographical areas within the state.
Should you have any questions please contact Sarah Chung, Autism Waiver Liaison, at 801-538-6357, or visit our website at http://health.utah.gov/autismwaiver.
