Autistic Children’s Treatment Must Now Be Covered By Health Insurance

One of the bills recently passed by the Texas Legislature will be good for the parents of autistic children. House Bill 1919, which becomes effective September 1, 2007, mandates that employer-provided health insurance policies must provide coverage for certain treatments for autistic children between the ages of three and five.

The text of the bill itemizes some services as “generally recognized,” such as evaluation and assessment services, applied behavior analysis, behavior training and behavior management, speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and medications and nutritional supplements used to address symptoms of autism spectrum disorder.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
