Mom Autism Money

Dec 7, 2021

Researchers Lindsay Shea, DrPH, MS and Kristy Anderson, PhD of Drexel University’s Autism Institute join us today to talk about Medicaid nationwide. We learn about some specific types of waivers, the history behind them, and those dreaded waitlists. We also learn about some important areas where there needs to be more funding for this type of policy research.

Today we’ll be discussing a couple different resources for parents in Pennsyvlania as a tangential part of our larger discussion about Medicaid access across the country. In Season 2, we will start delving further into Medicaid accessibility across individual states.
