Insurance Department Announces Agreement to Cover Treatment for Autism
San Fernando Valley Business Journal

The California Department of Insurance announced an agreement with United Healthcare Insurance Co. to provide coverage for behavioral therapy for autism, a costly treatment that was the subject of heated debates and a fight in the state legislature last year.

The agreement follows similar deals earlier this year with Blue Shield, Cigna and Woodland Hills based Health Net. Anthem Blue Cross has been providing coverage since a settlement in 2009.
