Autism Organizations Claim That ABA Therapy is a Benefit Under the Affordable Care Act

National autism organizations are urging citizens to sign a petition that seeks to ensure that ABA therapy is included as a benefit under the Affordable Care Act, rescinding the power from individual state lawmakers.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Dec. 6, 2012 - Autism Live, together with Center for Autism & Related Disorders (CARD), Autism Care and Treatment Today (ACT Today!), Skills, and Talk About Curing Autism (TACA), launched a petition today to urge Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius to specify that applied behavior analysis (ABA) is part of the essential health benefits in the Affordable Care Act.  

Without further guidance from Secretary Sebelius, each state will decide whether ABA-based treatment for individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) is covered as a behavioral health treatment.

This petition seeks to protect the existing healthcare benefits of individuals with ASD and to enhance the benefits for individuals who live in a state that doesn’t require insurance carriers to provide coverage for ABA-based treatment for ASD.  

To sign the petition and/or to find out more, click the link below.
