Autism Waiver Enrollment

Enrolling in Medicaid Waiver programs can feel overwhelming, but Bridge is here to guide you through the process, so please contact us with any questions.

How to enroll in the Adult Autism Waiver in Pennsylvania:

To obtain an application for Pennsylvania’s adult autism programs, there are two available methods: online or by phone. It’s important to note that applications cannot be requested through email or this website.

To request an application online, visit the Information Referral (IRT) Tool and answer a few basic questions. The IRT will then connect you to the COMPASS website where you can select “Submit a Referral” and answer additional questions to electronically submit the referral to the Bureau of Autism Services.

To request an application by phone, call the toll-free number 1-866-539-7689.

For a comprehensive understanding of the AAW application process, refer to the AAW Application Process Overview document, which includes a Process Flow Chart and details the application process from Intake through Enrollment, including specific timeframes where applicable.
