Autism Care Act (ACA)| Federal Government Committed to Autism
The Autism Community enjoyed victory this summer. On July 31, 2014, across party lines, the United States Senate voted to unanimously pass the Autism Care Act. The Senate joined Congress “in a clear and bipartisan message -- the federal government will not abandon three million Americans with autism in the midst of a public health crisis," said Autism Speaks President Liz Feld. President Obama is expected to sign the Autism Care Act (ACA) into law, which, in part, provides for 1.3 billion dollars in Federal Funding over the next five years; coverage even if you or your child has a pre-existing condition, including a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder and coverage of a minimum set of “essential health benefits” – including behavioral health treatment, [re] habilitative services, prescription drugs, and pediatric services.
FLASHA is honored and grateful to have received an ASHA Reimbursement Grant, which has allowed us to pursue education, and action with respect to advocacy for our members. FLASHA Members are welcome to read and review the Complete "FLASHA Reimbursment Report" in this week's FLASHA FORUM.
