I’m not understanding if TSS type services will still be provided at preschools
TYERGER
01:13:48
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.
melissa levin
01:14:30
so, am I correct that there is no more extended assessment?
Emily Hammer
01:14:50
what is considered the date of "initiation of services"
antoinettAntoinette.onsalves
01:15:18
Is page 1 and 2 of the written order required for reauthorizations?
UCZZ
01:15:32
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.)
Christine’s iPhone
01:16:11
can you please show again the Magellan website where this presentation will be available
Diane
01:17:47
so from this point forward, there will no longer be a psychologist evaluation???
melissa levin
01:18:04
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?
Emily Hammer
01:25:23
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?
melissa levin
01:25:24
what is the word you are saying?
melissa levin
01:25:27
orph ?
melissa levin
01:25:41
orph enrolled?
SDewyar
01:25:41
How do we find out if they are ORP enrolled?
Kristen Scalise
01:25:42

So a child cannot receive community based services without already being seen outpatient?
Jeanne’s iPhone 7
01:27:15

For families that are currently recieving services. Will there be changes to the services and if so when.
Christine’s iPhone
01:31:50
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
TYERGER
01:34:06
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
SDewyar
01:35:40
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.
SDewyar
01:36:57
Thank you!
brooke
01:37:02
Is staffing still happening through Magellen or directly by the agency writing the ORP?
iPhone
01:38:17
it’s almost impossible to get a tss now. How will y
iPhone
01:38:31
how will this change
iPhone
01:39:54
how long do current tss have to get trained?
iPhone
01:40:17
yes
iPhone
01:40:38
is there a grace period?
Emily Hammer
01:42:10
Does summary of written order need to be included in assessment?
iPhone
01:42:26
can ABA BHT provide one on one in community and camp etc?
Diane
01:43:03
Do RBT need the BHT trainings also
Diane
01:43:54
yes
iPhone
01:44:15
Since we have difficulty getting tss through Magellan
iPhone
01:44:25
can we used aba?
Diane
01:44:35
So we need a total of 24 hours for BHT trainings
iPhone
01:44:45
for one on one
iPhone
01:44:52
wrap around
iPhone
01:45:20
yes
Vicki’s iPhone
01:45:56
what is the major difference between ABA and TSS services
Diane
01:46:13
I thik you said for 6 months
iPhone
01:46:52
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 ?
Emily Hammer
01:47:22
When goal is mastered, do we need to have ITP meeting and change it in order to add new goals?
Diane
01:48:32
Where can I find the guidelines for these BHT trainings
iPhone
01:49:19
mt
Diane
01:50:17
Are the reimbursement rates higher for ABA services compared to individual BHT services
kford
01:51:54
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
kford
01:52:29
ok thank you
Jeanne’s iPhone 7
01:52:41
will BHTs be able to do physical management of children
Alka Gandhi
01:52:44
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?
Diane
01:53:17
I was under the impression that BHT/TSS are there to support the teacher, not 1-1 please advise
Diane
01:55:24
ok thanks
Diane
01:55:52
can we use this as a training
kford
01:55:53
what are the new qualifications for BHT
Alka Gandhi
01:56:31
hoping Magellan leadership team approves on the training for parents - especially similar to rbt
