The DMHC Autism Advisory Task Force Report on SB 946

SB 946 (Steinberg) Chapter 650, Statutes of 2011

SB  946 which went into effect on July 1, 2012, requires private health insurance plans to cover treatment for autism. The battle was fought with your help and perseverance.  Thank you to everyone who participated and showed support. This law is a victory not only for people diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders, but also for their communities of family members, care givers, health care providers and advocates.
