State regulators are stepping up efforts to ensure health insurers cover autism-related care. The move stems from concern that insurers don’t consistently pay for such coverage, which potentially violates a 2008 state law. Governor Josh Shapiro talked about the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act during a news conference this week at Drexel University. The measure requires health plans to ensure autism coverage that’s equal to what’s offered for medical and surgical services. The law does not require coverage of mental health services.
