Autism Live, together with The Center for Autism & Related Disorders (CARD), Autism Care and Treatment — Today (ACT-Today), Skills, and Talk About Curing Autism (TACA), launched a petition to urge Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius to specify that applied behavior analysis (ABA) is part of the essential health benefits in the Affordable Care Act. Without further guidance from Secretary Sebelius, each state will decide whether ABA-based treatment for individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) is covered as a behavioral health treatment. This petition seeks to protect the existing healthcare benefits of individuals with ASD and to enhance the benefits for individuals who live in a state that doesn’t require insurance carriers to provide coverage for ABA-based treatment for ASD.
