Kansas City Star: Kansas Legislature Can Learn From Missouri's Experience

February 06, 2012

KANSAS CITY, MO (February 6, 2012) -- The Kansas City Star in an editorial, 'One step forward,' said the Kansas legislature could learn from Missouri's experience in considering an expansion of autism insurance benefits. The editorial was referring to a new study by the Missouri Department of Insurance that found its autism insurance reform initiative had made coverage available to 1.3 million state residents while impacting premiums by 0.1 percent, a fraction of the impact that insurance industry lobbyists had claimed.
