The Early Intensive Developmental and Behavioral Intervention (EIDBI) Benefit is a Minnesota Health Care Program.
The purpose of the EIDBI Benefit is to provide medically necessary early intensive intervention for people with ASD and related conditions, as well as:
- Educate, train and support their parents and families
- Promote people’s independence and participation in family, school and community life
- Improve long-term outcomes and the quality of life for people and their families.
Across Minnesota and the nation, communities are experiencing a shortage of qualified healthcare providers. The provider shortage particularly affects rural areas. To find out what Minnesota is doing to build provider capacity, visit the Building EIDBI provider capacity webpage.
