CT House votes to require autism coverage
Connecticut has moved closer to requiring group health insurance policies to cover the cost of diagnosing and treating autism in young children. The state House of Representatives passed a bill, already approved unanimously by the state Senate, that would require coverage of behavioral therapy for children under 16, as well as certain prescription drugs and psychiatric and psychological services. Supporters of the legislation say it's unfair for families to pay hefty insurance premiums, yet be denied coverage for autism spectrum disorders.
