Missouri Health Insurance Autism Bill Advances in Senate

The Missouri health insurance autism senate bill, sponsored by Scott Rupp would require state regulated Missouri health insurance policies to cover up to $72,000 a year in treatment for autism until a person turned 21.

Businesses with fewer than 50 employees could seek exemptions. Support for a compromise exempting businesses with fewer than 25 employees is in discussion.  That cutoff would exempt about 223,000 Missourians who work for small businesses.
