Michigan Senate Backs Autism Bills

LANSING, Mich. -- The Michigan Senate approved a package of bills Tuesday that would require insurance companies to cover certain types of treatment or therapy for autism despite opposition from insurance and business groups and mental health advocates.
The three-bill package, approved on votes of 29-9 and 28-10, moves to the state House of Representatives. The legislation would require that insurance companies cover treatment for autism spectrum disorders up to $50,000 a year to age 18 and create a state fund to reimburse claims from insurers and third-party administrators.
