Autism and Health Insurance in California [INFOGRAPHIC]

Being a parent is both a challenging and rewarding experience, and it can come with a unique set of challenges if you have a child with an autism spectrum disorder. Thanks to a California law that went into effect in July of 2012, insurance coverage is now mandated for behavioral health treatments for people with autism. All fully-funded insurance plans that are regulated by the state must cover treatment for those with an autism spectrum disorder. These treatments can include Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) as well as speech and occupational therapy. Take a look at this infographic from Star of CA, a center for autism treatment in Los Angeles , to learn more about the autism insurance mandate and how ABA can help people with autism.
