Lawmakers consider autism coverage

By 67AM KPUA News

A bill before state lawmakers would require insurance companies to cover treatments for autism. Lawmakers in the House and Senate have passed versions of the bill, but they are still working out details.

They are debating an age limit for children who get mandated treatment and an annual or lifetime cap. Families say the bill is needed to ensure their children receive effective treatment, which is too costly to pay for out-of-pocket.

But the Hawai`i Medical Services Association opposes the bill. The insurance company says it would be too expensive to provide the services. Instead, it wants a cost study.
