Effective April 04/01/2022, All requests for the initial pre approval of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy Services “must” be submitted to Kepro through your eQSuite account. Providers who are not in active in our portal may submit a manual request by faxing the required documentation and a Manual case request form to 855-997-3707.
Requests for pre-approval of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) Therapy generally originate from the child’s Primary Care Physician (PCP) or the child’s parent/guardian but may also come from other sources such as therapists and counselors.
The required information includes:
Upon receipt of this information, if approved, DDS will mail an ABA Therapy Pre-Approval Information Packet to the child’s parent/guardian. The packet contains a list of ABA Providers enrolled with Medicaid that shows the therapists’ coverage area. Parents/guardians are instructed to select an ABA provider and furnish them with a copy of the letter contained in the packet as well as any documentation they have on their child’s diagnosis of ASD.
User guide for submitting ABA requests to the eQSuite Portal can be found here.
