Are there limits to the equine therapy I may receive?

The following limits apply to your receipt of equine therapy:
(1) Support needs for equine therapy are limited to those identified in your DDA assessment and documented in the person-centered service plan.
(2) The department requires your behavior specialist's written recommendation regarding your need for the service. This recommendation must take into account that the service is expected to complement the existing behavior support plan to address behavior support needs.
(3) Equine therapy requires prior approval by the DDA regional administrator or designee.
(4) DDA may require a second opinion by the department-selected provider.
(5) Equine therapy services must not exceed the CIIBS combined specialized-hourly services allocation of five thousand dollars per plan year.
(6) Equine therapy services must not be used to provide hippotherapy, which is an occupational therapy service.
(7) The department reserves the right to terminate the authorization for equine therapy services if there is not a demonstrable improvement in behavior as documented by the contracted equine therapist or other treatment provider.
