Purpose: To provide information about the state EIDBI Benefit and encourage providers to participate
Have you considered being an Early Intensive Developmental and Behavioral Intervention (EIDBI) provider? Minnesota’s EIDBI Benefit pays for medically necessary treatment of people under the age of 21 with autism spectrum disorder and related conditions who receive Medical Assistance.
Minnesota Department of Human Services is working with current and prospective providers across the state to increase participation in the EIDBI Benefit and to increase access to services for people with autism and their families.
The EIDBI Benefit:
A person is eligible to receive EIDBI services if he or she meets all of the following criteria:
A Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP) enrolled CMDE provider determines medical necessity for the person. Once the CMDE provider determines a person’s medical necessity, a qualified EIDBI provider will create an individual treatment plan to authorize EIDBI services.
Covered services for the benefit also include individual and group intervention, observation and direction, family or caregiver training and counseling, coordinated care conference and travel time.
If you have any questions or are interested in learning more about the benefits of becoming an EIDBI provider, please contact us through the ASD email inbox. We are happy to help you and your staff with any questions you have about the EIDBI benefit and the enrollment process.
