Let's Talk About the Autism Insurance Mandate In Oklahoma

Under Texas law, health insurance companies must cover applied behavior analysis for children with autism. But Oklahoma law does not mandate that same type of care be covered. Tune in at 3 p.m. Monday for a Google Hangout to discuss the debate around mandating insurance coverage for applied behavior analysis and other therapies for children with autism. There are a wide range of viewpoints, and we plan to explore those.

Our guests:

Scott Singleton, a board-certified behavior analyst-doctoral; Good Shepherd clinical director; University of Central Oklahoma assistant psychology professor

Jonathan Small, executive vice president of Oklahoma Council on Public Affairs

Judith Ursitti, director of state government affairs at Autism Speaks
