Autism Coverage

On May 21, 2009, Autism Speaks joined New Jersey families, Autism New Jersey, and other autism advocacy organizations in applauding the members of the State Assembly for passing A. 2238, which requires insurance companies to provide coverage of evidence-based, medically necessary autism therapies. The bill passed the New Jersey Assembly in a vote of 70-4-1 and now heads to the State Senate Budget & Appropriations Committee for further action.
