EPSDT vs Wraparound

Almost nobody knows that, regardless of family income, children in 33 states like Pennsylvania who do not yet have Medical Assistance (Medicaid) benefits but do have a mental disability (autism, ADHD, etc) can get expert mental health treatment and behavioral support at home, in school and in the community, at no cost whatsoever, and that treatment can often be started almost immediately.  Although the Institute for Behavior Change embraces the “wraparound” philosophy wholeheartedly, and infuses all treatment planning and delivery activity with “wraparound” philosophy, it is important to understand that “wraparound” is not a replacement or substitute for professional mental health treatment services.  For more information, please write to info@ibc-pa.org.
