As of September 19, 2017, Maryland Medicaid will now cover adaptive car seats when medically necessary for Medicaid enrollees. These seats can enable people who need more or different support than non-specialized, off-the-shelf car seats provide — or who have outgrown such car seats and require specialized seating — to ride safely in cars and thus participate more fully in the community. Disability Rights Maryland is available to consult with your doctor or physical therapist if he or she has any questions about how to apply for an adaptive car seat for you or your family member. Please contact us at (410) 727-6352.
