Announcing the Release of "Am I Covered?"We are pleased to announce the release of the Autism Insurance Resource Center's Coverage Determination tool!
Am I Covered? is an easy to use screening tool, that determines if a person's insurance is subject to the Massachusetts Autism Insurance Law (aka ARICA). It is designed to be used by both professionals and parents. Through a series of simple questions, it determines whether a policy is subject to ARICA.
For policies that are not subject to ARICA, it outlines some of alternatives to obtaining coverage. While the tool describes these, based on our experience, we anticipate that many users will want to contact us for information and technical assistance regarding the best approach for their situation. We continue to look forward to assisting providers and families in helping understand and access these alternatives. We think this will be a valuable resource, and look forward to any comments, feedback.
This tool was developed by INDEX, a project of The Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center, a division of The University of Massachusetts Medical School, with funding from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
