Autism in California: Major Health Insurers agree to provide autism coverage
San Francisco Chronicle

Great news. Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones announced today that he has reached favorable settlement agreements with two major health insurers, Health Net and Cigna, to guarantee coverage of behavioral therapy for autism, and to provide it to all insureds whenever medically necessary. The two new settlement agreements follow a similar settlement agreement reached last month with Blue Shield to provide behavioral health treatments, including Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy (ABA), a well-recognized and effective treatment for autism.
