Having access to the Michigan autism insurance benefit is now the LAW! Many parents are having issues accessing their autism insurance benefit. This may include having trouble getting into an approved diagnostic agency, finding approved providers, etc. There is a process to follow through each insurance agency for escalating your concern. This information is provided on the home page of the AAOM Collaborative Insurance Portal. More help can also be found at: Parents for Michigan Autism Insurance on Facebook
Please check out our new AAoM Collaborative Insurance portal. This site is designed as a centralized portal to share information about the status and impact of the autism insurance legislation in Michigan. This includes information for parents, providers, insurers, employers, and universities. It also has a calendar and upcoming workshops for parents and employers, and information about the workshop held on May 14-15, 2012. This is an evolving site and we will continue adding information as it is created and updated. We are also awaiting input from groups of stakeholders to update some of the pages. Check out the site for additional information and provide any input to firstname.lastname@example.org.
