How do I get extra care for my child?

  1. The Doctor writes a prescription. (for example, OT = Occupational Therapy)

  2. You take the prescription to the OT of your choice (must be an ASP = Amerigroup Service Provider).

  3. The chosen ASP completes an evaluation. They should submit the evaluation to Amerigroup for approval.

  4. Once (or if) Amerigroup approves the work, then you are able to begin the service.

For a child over the age of 3, you are able to go through the school system, however it is not required unless it is already established in their ILP. (Even if it is in their ILP, you can have it removed by setting up a meeting to have the ILP changed.)

Individual care provided is usually more effective because it is focused on the specific child's individual needs. Sometimes in group environments, it can sometimes be general work for the group, and progress is delayed if productive. However, any care (group or individual) is more productive than no care.
