Preserve Funding for Indiana's Medicaid Autism Waiver Services sign now

Individuals and families living with autism spectrum disorders need Medicaid waiver services to provide educational, medical and social services that promote economic and social independence and make it possible for many individuals to remain with their own families rather than be forced into institutions. Those who do currently receive Medicaid waiver services represent a fraction of the more than 15,000 who need and have qualified for such services but have been placed on years-long waiting lists necessitated by insufficient funding. The signers of this petition, who include individuals with autism as well as family members, relatives, educators, care providers, neighbors and friends of children and adults with autism, declare that they strongly support the preservation of funding for Medicaid waiver services for the autism community.
