Autism Insurance Bill Introduced in the FL Legislature
This post is for my little buddy Patrick. If you live in Florida, please read and respond.
Good Morning!Also, if you want to learn more about Autism, you can buy books about the topic through AutismSpeaks.org. They are an affiliate of Barnes & Noble where the commission is used for Autism Awareness.
Great news, Legislation has been introduced in Florida to require insurance coverage for autism spectrum disorders, and our politicians need to know that we want these bills to pass!
Go to www.myfloridahouse.gov to find out who your local representative is, call them and ask them to support House Bill 1291.
Go to www.flsenate.gov to find out who your state senator is, call them and ask them to support Senate Bill 2654.
Maybe if insurance was REQUIRED to include coverage for Autism Spectrum Disorder treatments, families wouldn't have the additional stress of an extra mortgage payment each month, just to have their children treated in that precious window of time, where treatment is most successful (Applied behavior analysis, occupational therapy, Speech therapy, etc.)
Obviously, this is something very close to my heart, and it only takes 3 minutes to call and leave a message asking the Representative or Senator to support these bills.
Hugs & Thanks
