National Standard Urged for Autism Coverage

Legislation and Healthcare News By State

March 20, 2013- "National Standard Urged for Autism Coverage"- The Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC) voted unanimously on Tuesday to send a letter to U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius highlighting the vast differences emerging as states determine what types of treatments insurance providers will be required to cover under the new health care reform law.  According to the IACC, the inconsistency among states is cause for alarm because it may force some families to migrate to find coverage while others will not have access to treatments that can improve the disorder.
