For years, the Georgia House and Senate have been at odds over insurance coverage for autism. But now, they’ve reached a compromise.
Leaders in both chambers say a Senate plan, which requires insurers to provide treatment coverage for children six years old and younger, will be combined with another House insurance bill today.
The compromise would lower the cap on treatment coverage to $30,000. The bill also says the insurance requirement would go away if the state adopts a more comprehensive approach.
