Last Mighigan Senate Task Force Meeting Held October 5
Lansing, MI (October 6, 2010) -- The last in a series of hearings on autism insurance reform legislation was held yesterday in Michigan.
Lorri Unumb, Autism Speaks senior policy advisor & counsel, testified at the hearing and told the Senate panel, "There is a huge autism tsunami that is about to hit Michigan. And it's going to cost an extraordinary amount of money in special education, adult care, instituti...onalization, if this current generation of kids doesn't get the treatment that it needs. Without private insurance playing its part, that treatment simply is not going to happen."
