Autism Speaks' National Legislative Agenda:


  • Support of the Disability Savings Act of 2008
    a bill that will provide a tax-preferred savings benefit for disability related expenses.
     

  • Undertake a multi-state insurance legislation campaign
    an effort to change insurance laws and require coverage of medically necessary autism services.
      • Indiana currently has a law in place that requires private insurance companies to cover autism services, including Applied Behavior Analysis.
  • Educational outreach to the policy staffs of all major party candidates for President in 2008
