SEATTLE (July 9, 2013) -- Washington State employees whose insurance claims for applied behavior analysis (ABA) for their children with autism were wrongfully denied may soon be eligible for $3.5 million in reimbursement.

In a class action suit brought on behalf of all Washington state workers, the plaintiffs and the Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA) have announced they have agreed to a preliminary settlement creating a special fund to reimburse families for their out-of-pocket ABA expenses.
