NC Families Demand Better Autism Insurance At Capital Rally - Autism Speaks - Advocasy

Liz Feld urges BCBS to drop it's opposition in open letter

July 15, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (July 15, 2014) -- With time running short in the current legislative session, families from around North Carolina rallied at the Capitol today to demand the state Senate consider an autism insurance reform bill already passed twice by the House.

At the rally, Autism Speaks President Liz Feld issued an open letter to Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) of North Carolina to drop its opposition and cover autism treatment as is done in 37 other states.During the time North Carolina lawmakers have battled over the bill, five other states plus the U.S. Virgin Islands have enacted insurance reform laws, while another six states have strengthened their existing laws.

"We are facing aggressive and expensive opposition for this coverage from Blue Cross Blue Shield and your team of lobbyists," Feld wrote in her letter to BCBS President J. Bradley Wilson. "Historically, BCBShas been committed to supporting the 'most vulnerable' in our society.

"Those living with an autism spectrum disorder need your commitment to include them," Feld said, in urging BCBS to support the bill. "North Carolina residents should not suffer without autism insurance, while residents in 37 other states receive fair coverage."

The open letter coincides with an aggressive newspaper ad campaign launched this week by Autism Speaks taking on BCBS and urging passage.

The North Carolina House of Representatives twice since 2013 has passed legislation that would require state-regulatedprivate health insurers to cover autism treatments, such as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) as well as speech, occupational and physical therapies. BCBS continues to argue that ABA is "experimental" and should be provided in schools at taxpayer expense.

In the House, Speaker Thom Tillis has championed the bill, leading its passage in that chamber and working with Senate leadershipto move the bill in that chamber. In a recent poll commissioned by Autism Speaks, 82 percent of North Carolinians supported autism insurance reform.

The original bill, HB.498, was approved 105-7 last year by the House then referred to the Senate Insurance Committee, chaired by Sen. Tom Apodaca. The bill was never heard.

This year, the House added the autism bill into a Senate regulatory reform bill, SB.493, and returned it to the Senate. The measurewas referred to the Rules and Operations Committee, also chaired by Apodaca.

Autism Speaks Takes On 'Big Insurance' In NC With Ad Campaign - Autism Speaks - Advocasy

Newspapers ads counter false arguments against autism insurance reform

July 15, 2014

RALEIGH, NC(July 14, 2014) – Autism Speaks, the world's leading autism science and advocacy organization, today announced the launch of newspaper advertisements supporting families affected by autism in their fight towards autism insurance reform in the North Carolina Legislature. The North Carolina Housetwice in two years has passed reform bills, but the Senate has refused to take up the issue.

The ads lay out the medical and economic facts of applied behavior analysis (ABA) that have been misrepresented by Blue Cross Blue Shield and other opponents to autism insurance reform in this year's short session. They also highlight the overwhelming 82 percent public support for this legislation in recent polling.

“It is shameless that Big Insurance companies are fighting against efforts to help children and their families who pay thousands of dollars a year in premiums for coverage that provides no meaningful autism benefits,” said Lorri Unumb, Autism Speaks' vice president for state government affairs. “The Senate must not stand for these barefaced lies and work with the House in finding a solution to help the 1 and 58 children affected with autism across the state.”

In both the 2013 and 2014 sessions the House has passed insurance reform bills, only to see the effort stalled by inaction in the Senate. During that time, Minnesota, Oregon, Utah, Nebraska, Maryland and the U.S. Virgin Islands have enacted reform, while six other states, including Texas and Kansas, have strengthened their original laws.

“How is it that leading medical professionals and 37 other states have concluded the same thing, yet Blue Cross continues to look the other way,” said Unumb. “It's time for the North Carolina Senate to stand with thousands of families who pay $60,000 a year out of pocket forcing some to move out of state.”

Researchers from the UNC Institute for Development Disabilities, American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Institute for Mental Health, the U.S. Surgeon General and countless other professional organizations have all endorsed ABA as an evidence-based treatment that has advanced the development and quality of life for generations of children with autism.

The ads will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

South Dakota Adds Consultant To Autism Study - Autism Speaks - Advocasy

Study ordered by Legislature to be completed by Nov. 15

July 14, 2014

(July 14, 2014) -- The South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation (DLR) has hired Health Management Associates to assist with a study on autism treatment and insurance. State agencies began the study in April in response to a billenacted by the Legislature after the Senate refused to consider an autism insurance reform measure passed 57-12 by the House.

The completed study is to be presented to the Governor and the Legislature by November 15. It is being led by the DLR and the state Department of Human Services (DHS).

“A critical part of the process will be considering the many points of view on this issue that exist in South Dakota,” saidDHS SecretaryGloria Pearson. “We need to hear from families, advocacy groups, legislators, policy leaders and others affected by autism spectrum disorders.”

The study willexplore the availability and certification of providers, medicallyaccepted treatments and outcomes, and the costs and benefits of autism services for children.

“The state will also look at the impact of requiring insurance plans to cover the various services associated with autism spectrum disorder so policy makers can make informed decisions,” said DLR Secretary Marcia Hultman.

Based on experience gathered from the 37 states that now require certain private insurers to cover autism treatment, the cost impact has been found to average 31 cents per member per month, or roughly the cost of a 6-piece Chicken McNuggets meal per year.Missouri, in the latest of its annual reports assessing the impact of its 2010 law, found that autism coverage accounted for0.2 percent of total claims costs in the state.

Of the 37 states that have enacted reform, four border South Dakota, including Nebraska which passed its law earlier this year.
