RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., April 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Celebrating Autism Awareness Month, Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP) wants to inspire Members and parents of Members to feel confident in advocating for themselves, their children, and family members to access the behavioral healthcare they need. The health plan supports more than 7,500 Members who are utilizing behavioral health treatment services for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and related conditions. Such services may include: applied behavioral analysis, speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, psychiatry services and more.
"Having Autism or being on the spectrum is nothing to be afraid of," said Heather Waters, IEHP's Manager of Behavioral Health and Care Management. "As a health plan, we want to take the stigma out of asking or seeking behavioral healthcare and encourage our Members or parents of Members to trust their gut and ask for support as soon as they spot any signs or symptoms of possible developmental delays."
Waters shared that early treatment and recognition of symptoms, as early as one year of age and before a child enters school, can result in better health outcomes, especially for children. Signs and symptoms vary and can range from obsessive or compulsive behaviors, to poor social skills, delayed milestones, and more.
IEHP Medi-Cal Members can be referred to services and treatment for ASD symptoms by a Medical Doctor or a Licensed Psychologist. This allows Members under 21 years of age to access critically important behavioral and developmental therapies immediately, while they undergo the autism evaluation process.
IEHP's Internal Behavioral Health Team helps Members and their families navigate an ASD diagnosis through actively coordinating services and additional resources through partnerships with several provider groups and local agencies across the region.
Recently, IEHP collaborated with the Inland Empire Autism Assessment Center of Excellence (AAC) to provide a Member in Indio with a complete Autism Diagnostic Evaluation through telehealth appointments.
"Even with care coordination challenges like location and Member condition, the situation wasn't impossible," said Waters. "As the Member and their family connected with the AAC, our team checked in regularly to make sure the services were effective and to remind the family and Member that they were not alone in this journey."
To receive an evaluation or additional services, Members are encouraged to call IEHP's Member Services at 1-800-440-4347 and ask for the Behavioral Health Department.

For anyone looking to get ahead in the investing game, following in the footsteps of stock picking legends is an obvious path to follow.

That single act, however, does not define Soros, who has made sound investment decisions throughout his career which bought decades-long returns of 30% to his Qu

This is especially true as the Federal Reserve has reiterated its hawkish commentary even in the face of falling inflation, as well as broader lockdowns in China amid the first reported COVID deaths in the country in six months.
