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.
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.
