A few months ago, West Michigan’s WOOD News Radio ran a story about Michigan’s New Autism Insurance Coverage Mandate.
The article said that along with requiring medical plan coverage of autism treatments, the state Treasury will help to pay for them.
Michigan’s Autism Coverage Reimbursement Program took effect in October 2012, and under the new state autism coverage laws, health insurance plans can file claims to help offset the cost of the new requirements for autism insurance coverage.
Although the government says more treatments will be available, the Detroit News reports that many families may get little, if any, help anytime soon. There are, apparently, too few specialists in Michigan. Also, some insurance companies, like Blue Cross Blue Shield, are putting limits on the coverage.
Michigan has a website to help with the new Autism Coverage Reimbursement Program that is worth checking out. Click here.
