Matrix blogged last summer about a new law, SB 946 that went into effect July 1, 2012 (Know Your Rights — Health insurance must cover autism) which mandates that insurance must cover behavioral health treatment for autism.
Directors of several Area Boards in southern California are meeting with the Department of Managed Health Care on December 4, 2012 and working with the Office of Clients Rights’ Advocacy and Disability Rights California to address concerns families may have about the implementation of SB 946. In order to best represent the concerns of those who are impacted by SB 946, they are requesting your feedback. Your feedback is welcome even after the December 4 meeting date has passed. Please reply to this survey if you and your family have had challenges in the following areas:
- Delays in the start of services
- Choice in terms of providers
- Other issues
