Lt. Governor Calley Signs Autism Coverage Legislation

By FOX 47 News. CREATED Apr 19, 2012

Families dealing with autistic kids are about to get some help.

Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley signed legislation requiring insurance companies to offer coverage for autism.

It allows the state to create an autism coverage incentive, so insurance carriers and third-parties can get reimbursed for paid claims.
