Help Pass the Autism Insurance Reform Bill

It is an important time for families and professionals as Mississippi looks at the Autism Insurance Reform Bill. The bill has passed the house of representatives and is headed to the senate. This is the time to send emails and urge your senators and to vote to help kids with autism receive the therapies they need to improve their quality of life! The services Jackson Autism Center provides such as behavior intervention as well as social skills classes and toilet training classes are improving home and school life for many individuals. Wouldn’t it be awesome if some or all of these services were covered under insurance allowing more kids and individuals with autism to access these services?! Autism Speaks has made it super easy- I would ask you to include your personal story at the top of the emails to help show how important this is to you and WHY.  Send an email now! Tell Lt. Gov. Reeves to schedule a hearing and get this bill passed!
