The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) has contracted with Beacon Health Strategies, LLC, a Beacon Health Options company, to provide utilization management services for Medicaid recipients receiving Behavior Analysis (BA) services beginning in January 2017. The program’s goal is to assess impacted youth and families to determine what BA services are necessary for the child and what training and support will help family members and caregivers to sustain positive behavior modification in the child.
The BA Program is open to Florida Medicaid-eligible recipients. For more information, visit Behavior Analysis Services Provider Information.
Beacon is implementing a utilization and quality management program to review BA cases and to ensure quality treatment that is effective and appropriate.
Any licensed behavioral health professional and/or Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) can provide services under this program. For more information about how to become a Medicaid provider, please call 800-289-7799, option 4.
