Officials want autism treatment law enforced

Thursday, February 28, 2013

California state officials are going after insurance companies for not covering treatments for autism patients.

Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones is proposing emergency regulations to force insurers to pay for behavioral therapies for autism.

State lawmakers passed the law last year but say they're still getting complaints that treatments aren't being covered.

Treatments can cost up to $50,000 a year.
