Changes for Connecticut Autism Coverage on the Horizon
Connecticut currently provides autism counts to help families pay for medical bills and insurance, but a recent Connecticut Insurance Department bulletin may change those protection plans. The changes deal with a part of the federal health law that keeps plans from imposing annual or lifetime monetary limits on essential health benefits. But now, the federal Department of Health and Human Services said those limits, such as restricting the number of physician visits or days in the hospital, are permissible. Experts are worried the lack of consistency in plans may breed confusion, limit access to care and cause other states to follow suit.
