When I buy my individual or small group policy, including through Connecticut's health insurance marketplace, will applied behavior analysis (ABA) be covered?
Yes. Insurers that offer new coverage to individuals and small businesses are expected to cover ABA beginning in 2014. Connecticut imposes various dollar caps on the amount of ABA that must be provided each year. Because the ACA prohibits annual dollar limits on essential health benefits, insurers may be able to convert these limits into non-dollar limits (such as a cap on the number of sessions of applied behavior analysis each year).
Where can I learn more about Connecticut's health insurance marketplace?

Did Connecticut choose to expand its Medicaid program?
Yes. Connecticut will expand its Medicaid program in 2014 to cover households with incomes up to 133 percent of the federal poverty level. That works out to about $15,800 a year for individuals or $32,500 for a family of four. Learn more here about your options.
