Center for Autism and Related Disorders Offers Free California Autism Insurance Seminars to Help Parents Gain Access to Funding

The Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) will host a series of seminars on "California Insurance Funding for Autism Treatment" throughout California from July 28 - August 25th to educate parents on the new California law.

Los Angeles, CA (I-Newswire) July 7, 2012 - The Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD), the world's largest provider of state-of-the-art early intensive behavioral intervention for children with autism spectrum disorders, will host a series of seminars, "California Insurance Funding for Autism Treatment," to educate families and other caregivers about the California Autism Insurance Mandate (SB 946). As of July 1st, the law requires most insurance providers to cover behavioral health treatment, including applied behavior analysis (ABA), for individuals on the spectrum. The free, two-hour seminars will be held from July 28 - August 25, 2012 at CARD centers in Fresno, the East Bay, Garden Grove, Sacramento, San Diego, and Tarzana.

"With 1 in every 88 children in America diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, it is important for parents to know their insurance options and learn how to navigate through the insurance process," says CARD Founder and Chief Executive Officer Doreen Granpeesheh, PhD, BCBA-D. "This new law means that parents and other caregivers will no longer have to worry about whether they can afford treatment that's been proven to recover individuals on the spectrum," says Dr. Granpeesheh. In August, 2009, CARD researchers published "Retrospective Analysis of Clinical Records in 38 Cases of Recovery from Autism" in the Annals of Clinical Psychiatry, showing that results of treating autism spectrum disorders can include recovery.

CARD's series of seminars will provide the most effective ways to access coverage, including:

• Services that insurance companies will and will not cover
• Types of plans and rules regarding coverage
• Effective strategies to maximize your benefits
• How to understand the complexities of different insurance carriers
• Which plans will have to comply with SB 946
• What to know during open enrollment
• How the mandate affects other types of funding (e.g., regional center)
