Approved: Katie Beckett / Medicaid Deeming Waiver

We finally received a decision on Chase's Medicaid Waiver Application (Katie Beckett/Deeming Waiver) - and he was approved! We will have to reapply each year, but for the next twelve months, he will have an extra form of insurance to cover what our regular, private insurance plan may not pay for. We are so thrilled!

To be able to take advantage of the Medicaid status, Chase will receive new assessments from each therapist and will need new authorizations from his pediatrician. I will also have to check to see whether his current doctors are Medicaid providers. But it will be worth all the extra paperwork!

I have gotten so many comments and questions via this blog from others going through the same application process, and hopefully this might be a glimmer of hope for more approval letters all around! Yea!


  1. We are so thrilled! Love, Nana & Boo

  2. We are working on ours now...did you get help with it. We are considering paying someone to help us for the first one.

  3. We have that and it is amazing!! It even pays for his special formula.

  4. Congratulations - I'm so happy for you!
