Workgroup on Access to Habilitative Services Benefits
A work group was established through legislation passed by the 2012 Maryland General Assembly. Its charges are to determine: 

  • if children who are entitled to habilitative services under health insurance policies or contracts, or health maintenance organization contracts, are receiving these benefits; 
  • if those children are not receiving the services, the reasons why;
  • ways to promote optimum use of these services; and 
  • the costs and benefits associated with expanding habilitative services coverage to individuals under the age of 26 years.
