Senator Fuschillo calls on New York State to adopt a law to ensure that individuals with autism receive insurance coverage for the screening, diagnosis and treatment of autism spectrum disorders.

Currently, individuals with autism are routinely denied insurance benefits for treatment of their disorder, forcing them to spend tens of thousands of dollars out of their own pockets to cover treatment costs.

Senator Fuschillo spoke about the legislation during the Senate's adoption of a resolution recognizing April as "Autism Awareness Month."
