I’m not understanding if TSS type services will still be provided at preschools
If a child lives in Montgomery but the school district they reside in is Boyertown school district will the services cross county lines into berks county or would they only remain in Montgomery county. This is in regards to children entering preschool who have an autism diagnosis.
We will be happy to respond to your questions shortly. Thanks for asking.
so, am I correct that there is no more extended assessment?
what is considered the date of "initiation of services"
Is page 1 and 2 of the written order required for reauthorizations?
Do re-evals for re-authorization still need to be done with a psycologist at the servicing agency? Can these re-evals be done at the main office of this agency? (I am told that currently they cannot be performed at the main office of the agency.)
can you please show again the Magellan website where this presentation will be available
so from this point forward, there will no longer be a psychologist evaluation???
so in order to start the process for services, you need to go to a licensed psych, or appropriate mental health professional who is in network with Magellan and have them write an order? can families see a private psychologist who is not connected with MA?
sorry but can you clarify what timeframe the 30 days is -for example, the "face to face assessment needs to be completed within 30 days of initiation of ABA services?" 30 days from when?
what is the word you are saying?
How do we find out if they are ORP enrolled?
ORP Ordering, Referring and Prescribing
So a child cannot receive community based services without already being seen outpatient?

what should a new family do to get started? I work at a preschool and we used to send families to the Extended Assessment Program
MA ID# and NPI #
For families that are currently recieving services. Will there be changes to the services and if so when.
so I guess the next step would be to contact the current agency to see how they will be handling written orders ie a psychological evaluation
Can aba services be provided in an intermediate unit classroom for children between the ages of 3 to 5 in addition to the services they receive from the intermediate unit. The child has an autism diagnosis
Just to clarify, new families looking for these services should contact Magellan or talk with their ORP enrolled provider to get the order first and then call Magellan? I have families being told different places to start.
Is staffing still happening through Magellen or directly by the agency writing the ORP?
it’s almost impossible to get a tss now. How will y
how will this change
how long do current tss have to get trained?
is there a grace period?
Does summary of written order need to be included in assessment?
can ABA BHT provide one on one in community and camp etc?
Do RBT need the BHT trainings also
Since we have difficulty getting tss through Magellan
can we used aba?
So we need a total of 24 hours for BHT trainings
for one on one
what is the major difference between ABA and TSS services
I thik you said for 6 months
so since BSC with Magellan currently can we go thru an aba provider and do the one on one ? keeping both Magellan for my and BSC and ?
When goal is mastered, do we need to have ITP meeting and change it in order to add new goals?
Where can I find the guidelines for these BHT trainings
Are the reimbursement rates higher for ABA services compared to individual BHT services
just making sure I am grasping this: TSS now=BHT--? will 1:1 still continue in school classroom's like traditional BHRS services for those students who need 1:1 interventions for attention/prompting/redirection
ok thank you

will BHTs be able to do physical management of children
Will Magellan be able to provide some training/teaching to parents and/or of the concerned individual regarding the basics of what a BHT or RBT does? It can be via presentations such as this or just post some presentations online on Magellan website? (as sometimes parents can be the best advocates for their child though this is not true always). if this is not possible, which company or who would be able to help the parents on this?
I was under the impression that BHT/TSS are there to support the teacher, not 1-1 please advise
can we use this as a training
what are the new qualifications for BHT
hoping Magellan leadership team approves on the training for parents - especially similar to rbt
