You Are

All children are unique. They have their gifts, talents and other things about them that make them special. They also have their challenges. Their own mountains to climb. Children who have autism are no different. They just have autism.

Parenting is never easy. Things can be even more difficult when you have a child with special needs. We understand those challenges and are here to help you. Our philosophy at MAC is one size does not fit all. We recognize your child for being that uniquely, special person who happens to have autism.

We are here to be your resource. Your confidants. Your partner as you navigate through next steps with your child and with your family.

We are here for you.

Beginning on Jan. 1, Minnesota children got more stable access to Medicaid health insurance.

Signed into law in 2023 by Governor Tim Walz, continuous eligibility promotes and supports health equity by preventing gaps in needed care. Better access to preventive care may lead to healthier children and ultimately result in lower spending in public health care programs, since identifying and treating issues early can reduce the need for costlier treatments.

Although children in Medical Assistance will maintain coverage for a year at a time, they will still be subject to annual eligibility renewals. Renewals were suspended during the COVID-19 emergency but have since resumed. To avoid gaps in coverage, Medical Assistance enrollees are urged to update their contact information and watch their mail for important renewal paperwork.
