Autism Insurance Legislation
Mandated insurance coverage for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has passed in many states, including Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. The passage of state autism insurance laws demonstrates that some fiscal responsibility belongs to the health insurance companies. In many states, the impetus for mandated coverage for ASD treatments was to reduce the financial burdens from the states themselves.
Each state has its own distinct rules and regulations. It is important to note that not all private insurance plans are required to provide coverage for ASD treatments.
