Utah Autism services providers have achieved professional equality! The Equal Medicaid Reimbursement Rates for Autism appropriations request for ongoing and one time funds was included in 2023 Legislative budget. Providers of Autism services to Utah Medicaid clients will see a rate increase that will be retroactive to April 1, 2023. This is a huge win for Autism services! Finally services provided to people with autism will be reimbursed equally. Current Utah Medicaid rates can be found at Utah Medicaid Reimbursement Fee Schedule Download

If this type of change for Utah ABA Providers matters to you, please consider becoming a CUAP Member Organization. It takes the dedication and representation of Utah ABA Providers to make an impact. To date, all of CUAP membership fees have been used for legislative lobbying. All the rest of the work has been completed through the volunteer work of CUAP members.
