New state law calls for autism coverage
Orange County Register

A new state law took effect July 1 that requires insurance companies to pay for autism treatment, in what regulators describe as a reconfirmation of existing law. Lisa Ackerman, founder of Irvine-based Talk About Curing Autism or TACA, said the law, known as SB 946, builds upon the Mental Health Parity Law, which took effect in 2000.
