"G. The Department of Medical Assistance Services shall have the authority to provide coverage for applied behavioral analysis as an in home transitional service in the Family Access to Medical Insurance Security (FAMIS) Plan.  The department shall promulgate emergency regulations to implement this amendment within 280 days or less from the enactment of this act."

(This amendment provides funding to expand services for autism spectrum disorders under the FAMIS program. Under current law, only children in the fee for services (FFS) portion of FAMIS are eligible to receive coverage of applied behavioral analysis. This proposal will extend that coverage to all children enrolled in FAMIS regardless of the source of payment.)
