Hawaii Passes Autism Insurance Reform!
The Hawaii legislature passed a landmark autism insurance reform bill during the 2015 legislative session. The legislation, which received overwhelming support, now heads to Governor David Ige for signature. If signed, Hawaii would join 41 other states guaranteeing insurance coverage for those with autism.
SB 791, sponsored by Senator Josh Green (D-Kohala/Kona), would require state-regulated insurance plans to cover medically necessary treatment for autism including behavioral health treatment, psychiatric, psychological, pharmaceutical and therapeutic care. The legislation also requires plans to cover applied behavior analysis (ABA) with a maximum of $25,000 per year through 13 years of age.
