The nation’s largest health insurer says it will soon include coverage of applied behavior analysis in every group plan it offers.
UnitedHealthcare said that starting next year, every small and large group plan it sells across the country will feature coverage of the autism therapy.
“We recognize the growing interest in ABA among many consumers and in the marketplace,” the insurer said in announcing the change. “Beginning on or after Jan. 1, 2017, UnitedHealthcare will be extending ABA benefit coverage to new and renewing fully insured small and large group plans in the few remaining states that do not mandate ABA coverage.”

A true entrepreneur is coming out of Silicon Valley, but this one is special. He's just 14 and he's published his first book, and he's also living with autism.

Jonathan Ebel can sit in this corner for hours doing what he loves. As a child with autism, he learned to draw just four years ago. Then one day his mother took his large scale drawings and stories and put them into a comic book format.

Talk about nerve-wracking. Sitting in the Green Room at the Sundance Film Festival in January, Walter Suskind was about to screen the world premiere of the documentary Life, Animated. It would be his first time watching the film inspired by his father Ron Suskind’s best-selling book Life, Animated: A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes, and Autism. And he would be doing so in a theater with hundreds of strangers.
“It was terrifying,” he says. “I was about to puke.”
But when the first scenes appeared — old home movies from 1992 — Suskind was instantly calm. There he was on the big screen, a 4-year-old, sitting with his little brother Owen, a typically precocious 2-year-old, their dad reading to them. http://www.forbes.com/sites/nextavenue/2016/07/22/what-will-happen-to-adult-children-with-autism/#52215d1d470b
'Life, Animated' sheds light on realities facing families.
