Series of Workshops On New York Law Set Across the State

NEW YORK (Oct. 2, 2012) -- Judith Ursitti, Autism Speaks' director of state government affairs, will familiarize parents, caregivers and professionals with New York's new autism insurance reform law at a series of workshops conducted across the state through December. The new law takes effect November 1.

Among the issues covered will be:

  • What is covered under the new law?
  • How will the law impact your health plan?
  • How will the healthcare benefits interface with benefits under an IFSP, IEP or ISP?
  • What do you do if your plan is self-insured?
  • How will potential changes in the DSM affect coverage?
