Are there limits to the music therapy I may receive?

The following limits apply to your receipt of music therapy:
(1) Support needs for music 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 music therapy is expected to complement the existing behavior support plan to address behavior support needs.
(3) Music therapy requires prior approval by the DDA regional administrator or designee.
(4) DDA may require a second opinion by a department-selected provider.
(5) Music therapy must not exceed the CIIBS combined specialized-hourly services allocation of five thousand dollars per year.
(6) The department reserves the right to terminate the service authorization for music therapy if there is not a demonstrable improvement in behavior as documented by the certified music therapist or other treatment provider.
