Autism Spectrum Disorders & Insurance Coverage

Many children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in Indiana are being denied coverage for therapies otherwise mandated by state law. (State Mandate: http://iga.in.gov/static-documents/0/e/0/d/0e0d26fd/TITLE27_AR8_ch14.2.pdf) Such therapies include therapies such as Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) which are highly effective and recommended by the State Surgeon General. However, many insurance companies have taken a very rigid stance on this issue and denied coverage across the state to a number of children, leaving their families in dire financial predicaments. The issue has been a center of debate between advocates and insurance providers for well over a year. However, insurance providers have showed little flexibility and dug in their heels on this issue.
