Urge Gov. Cuomo to sign the landmark Autism Health Insurance Bill

Good News. (Friday, 24 June 2011)

Both the houses of the New York State Legislature have passed the Autism Health Insurance Bills. (S4005A and A6305A). Now it is upto Gov. Andrew Cuomo to sign them into law.

The bills require insurance companies to provide coverage for screening and treating people with autism spectrum disorders, with methods including behavioral health treatments as well as speech, occupational and physical therapy.

Twenty-five other states already have a similar requirement for insurers.

Please call Gov. Andrew Cuomo (518-474-8390 )today and urge him to sign S4005A and A6305A into Law. Thank You.
