My 3 year old son was just diagnosed with PDD in the fall. He is receiving therapy through the school system which is great but the Dev. Ped. wants him to have additional therapy. My insurance company is saying they are not required to cover autism, for a multitude of reasons, but one is that it is a developmental delay and not a loss of function. They say recovery therapy should only take a short time not the continual therapy that an autistic child needs.
In doing research it seems that GA does have a law requiring some sort of coverage for autism. Where can I find the exact law to find out if they are obligated?
