Minnesota Autism Center accepts most commercial insurance when Mental Health benefits are included in the plan. Also, Minnesota Autism Center requires secondary insurance when needed. Medical Assistance (MA) programs cover the cost of services provided by MAC, specifically straight MA (MA not attached to a commercial plan) or the MA TEFRA option.
Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act, or TEFRA, is available for qualifying disabled children in Minnesota. This option may require parents to pay a parental fee based on their income.
To apply for MA, contact your county caseworker. Your county caseworker will check your eligibility for TEFRA and assist you in obtaining an application. You can also go online to the DHS website at www.dhs.state.mn.us. Feel free to contact the Intake Coordinator for more information on funding and your particular coverage.
