To be eligible for ACAP, you must:
To enroll in ACAP, you must call the Bureau of Supports for Autism and Special Populations (BSASP) at 1-866-539-7689 (toll-free) and request an application. Requesting an application does not mean you will automatically be enrolled in the program. After you call, BSASP will send you an application if you meet the eligibility requirements. Applications are mailed in the order of the date and time people call.
ACAP is the first program of its kind in the nation, and it will only be able to serve 200 adults with autism. Please call BSASP today to request an application.
If you have questions about ACAP, please call Keystone Autism Services at 717-220-1495 or request more information online.

No. Eligibility is based solely on the circumstances of your adult son or daughter.
You do not need to drop MA coverage to apply for ACAP. In fact, ACAP is an MA program and continues to provide full health coverage when you enroll. At the time of enrollment into ACAP, you simply switch your MA coverage from your Medical Assistance Managed Care Organization coverage and accept coverage through ACAP. There will be no lapse in your medical insurance coverage.
Yes. A secondary diagnosis does not disqualify a person from ACAP. To be eligible, a person must have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder but may have other diagnoses as well.
Upon enrollment, your Supports Coordinator will gather information about your primary care physician, dentist and other practitioners that you may see periodically. We will contact those physicians and request that they become providers in our network. Although we cannot guarantee their participation, we will do our best to secure their services. We also have a diverse network listing of physicians.
