The Autism Treatment Acceleration Act (ATAA) has been introduced in the Senate by Senators Richard Durbin (D-IL) and Robert Casey (D-PA). ATAA is comprehensive federal legislation that addresses critical challenges facing the autism community, including increased funding for scientific research, treatment and services. A key section of the bill requires all insurance companies to provide coverage for evidence-based, medically-necessary autism treatments and therapies, ending the insurers’ long-standing discrimination against children with autism.
