PLEASE HELP! Arizona To Repeal Autism Insurance Therapy Coverage

Dear Friends, I need your help today with an urgent matter.  As you may know, a few years ago, the State of Arizona passed a Bill that approved Insurance coverage for the behavioral treatment of Autism.  This bill was one of the first passed and it has already changed the lives of numerous families and children.  Today, the Arizona House of Reps repealed the Bill.  Of course this came as a great shock to our families and we are very concerned that it will also produce a precedent for other States who have or are in the process of passing similar insurance bills.

We are asking everyone we know to contact the Governor of Arizona today (or as soon as possible) to ask that she veto SB 1593.

I know many of you are from other States, but I urge you to help us in this process because I believe this may endanger future bills in other states as well.   If you have personal contact with celebrities, government officials or representatives of your state, please ask them for help as well.  Your efforts are much appreciated.

The link to the governors website is: www.azgovernor.gov

On this website, there is a section where you can submit comments.  Please ask the Governor of Arizona to veto SB 1593.  There is also a phone number you can call if you would like direct contact with the Governor’s office.

  1. Without this insurance our son would have been lost. We simply could not afford the type of treatment he received over the years. When we started with this insurance we had a stimming, cold staring, non-verbal child. Today, because of the program and the medical help we received, we now have a 5th grader in Arizona public schools who just made the A’s honor roll.

    For those parents who may have just been accepted into this program, their elected officials have once again let them down. This is a disgrace to these beautiful kids.

  2. We don’t have anything like this in Australia so I am urging ALL OF YOU to fight for this , get your friends , nag them about it, if they are sick of you nagging then they are not real friends. you can all do it, be the voice for your kids, don’t lose this!

  4. There are definitely lots of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to convey up. I offer the ideas above as basic inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you bring up the place the most important thing might be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged round issues like that, but I’m positive that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Each boys and girls feel the impact of only a second’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.

  5. Hey there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. Many thanks!
