Governor signs bill mandating insurance for autism care - Times Union

The Albany Times Union covers the new New York autism mandate.

Following years of debate and false starts, Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill Tuesday requiring insurers to cover screening, diagnosis and treatment of autism.

"The children will get the help, the families will get the support," Cuomo said before signing the measure, which was passed by lawmakers last session.

The law could save families with autistic children tens of thousands of dollars, although it will likely contribute to an increase in health insurance premiums in the state. The law takes effect on Nov. 1 of next year.

So it goes. Read the rest of the article at the Albany Times Union website.
