Part of the reason for the limits is, of course, financial. But there are other issues. For example, some companies pay for autism treatments only up to age 21 (apparently they assume that if the child is still disabled at age 21, treatment is pointless!). Others pay only for treatments recommended by the American Pediatric Association. Still others pay only for treatments NOT provided by schools.
What do you think insurance companies should cover? Vote in the poll (you can select more than one option). And while you're thinking about insurance, what's your take on whether insurance companies should cover ancillary services such as respite care, 1:1 aides in community settings, and specialized equipment such as weighted vests, sensory toys, etc?
