Autism and Insurance Coverage | State Laws


Some states require insurers to provide coverage for the treatment of autism. However, opponents to this approach argue that care for individuals with autism is the responsibility of parents and the school systems. Others have raised concerns that mandating coverage for autism will significantly increase insurance premiums. . .
