Self-funded insurance can be an obstacle to accessing applied behavioral analysis (ABA) for many children with autism because ABA is not covered under many self-funded plans. If families want companies to put ABA coverage in the self-funded health insurance policies offered, they can contact Autism Speaks' Lorri Unumb at Lorri.Unumb@AutismSpeaks.com. Autism Speaks will often provide advocacy support by speaking to a companies HR department. Hear more about this in the Autism Speaks Town Hall Meeting by clicking this Town Hall Link and going to 28:18 on the time line.
