Private Health Insurance

Funding Treatment

Shadow effect

Children and families residing in Wisconsin have options for funding an autism treatment program.  These may include private health insurance plans or under the behavioral treatment benefit under ForwardHealth.  ForwardHealth includes the Medicaid, BadgerCare Plus and Katie Beckett programs.

We know that identifying, interpreting and accessing funding options can be a daunting task.

We are here to help!

Behavioral treatment services for autism are available as a Medicaid benefit under ForwardHealth. ForwardHealth includes BadgerCare Plus, Medicaid, and the Katie Beckett Program.

The behavioral treatment benefit is available for the following groups:

  • Children currently receiving autism treatment services under the CLTS Waiver Program;
  • Children who have been diagnosed and are waiting for autism treatment services; and
  • Children who receive health care coverage through BadgerCare Plus, Medicaid, or the Katie Beckett Program and who have a need for behavioral treatment.

The new behavioral treatment benefit will be funded as a regular ForwardHealth benefit (like a physician service or a well-child screening).
