  • Great news!

    The bill will include the provision of behavioral health treatments as part of the health insurance policy.

    The bill must now be passed by the U.S. Senate. We'll get there. OP

  • I have a son with autism and am not happy about it. He has medicaid already, so I don't think there will be a change in services for him, I just think it's going to suck more of my tax dollars.
