Access Committee

The MiBAP Access Committee is committed to increasing access to Applied Behavior Analytic services for children and families impacted by autism. The Access Committee focuses on identifying and removing barriers to service. This includes: educating others about diagnostic requirements and the process by which services may be obtained, evaluating diagnostic bottlenecks and network insufficiencies which may prevent clients from accessing services in a timely manner, examining reimbursement rates and unintended consequences of legislative changes to rates (e.g., reductions in services to school-aged children and children with severe problem behavior), working to ensure that payors are not in violation of state mandates and/or federal law, and removing barriers to school and community-based services.
