Attachment Therapy!!

We have been approved for Attachment Therapy and get home therapy!!! My agency is paying for the assessments and Medicaid will cover most of the cost of treatment. We will have to pay a minimal copay but their is a program called IFY (?) and they pay for AT. I am so thrilled and excited. They actually called me to apologize it would take a week to find us the right therapist and coordinate with our agency. WOW, a week. I told her we have waited almost a year, a week we can manage.

Wow, Medicaid paying for attachment therapy?!?! How did you do it? It is sooo hard to get Medicaid to pay for it. I'd be interested in knowing how you were able to justify the treatment.

Eager to know more,

We are in GA and tey have a program they said was called IFY. I have no odea how to spell it or how it works but believe me I will get the details b/c this is such an important issue for parents trying to pay for AT. We are fortunate to have the option of 2 centers here in Atlanta nad only one accepts Medicaid and not for all their patients. I will let you know ASAP.
