California orders Kaiser to stop denying physical, occupational and speech therapy to certain patients
Contra Costa Times

State regulators on Monday ordered Kaiser Foundation Health Plan to stop denying physical, occupational and speech therapy to certain patients. Kaiser has declined such therapy to members who lack a “physical condition,” according to documents filed by the state Department of Managed Health Care. That means that people who may stutter or lisp or who have developmental delays don’t receive speech therapy, for example, said Anthony Manzanetti, chief of enforcement for the state agency.
