Changes in Behavioral Health Treatment (BHT) for individuals receiving Medi-Cal
The state of California intends to provide BHT services as a covered Medi-Cal benefit

For individuals under 21 years of age with autism spectrum disorder, the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) has communicated a change that will effect persons currently receiving BHT through regional center funding.  Behavior Health Treatment will be provided as a covered benefit, meaning families will receive the service funded by Medi-Cal.

Your Service Coordinator will be working with you on this transition.

DHCS has put out a frequently asked questions (FAQ) document to help the public understand the changes.
