California Governor Gavin Newsom must sign SB 163! Californians with autism deserve insurance funding for whichever evidence-based treatment method their doctors prescribe for THEM. 

Families seeking help for autism are regularly denied insurance coverage for physician-prescribed, evidence-based behavioral health treatment due to the widespread myth that there is only ONE scientifically proven approach, ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis). Patients deserve to receive whichever of the evidence-based treatments their doctors believe would be most effective for their patient, including developmental, relationship-based approaches to treatment. A “one size fits all” method doesn’t work for every patient... SB 163 ensures that families and doctors will have choices!
