New Resource on Health Coverage Options now available

This guide was created for parents and professionals who need to understand health coverage options for the treatment of autism and other developmental disabilities.  It describes different types of health coverage plans, what federal and state laws apply to these types of plans, how those laws affect what benefits are covered, and it provides tips on accessing benefits.

Ensuring that children receive the full range of intervention available through their health coverage is a collaborative effort between parents and professionals.
