North Carolina

While North Carolina has not passed healthcare reform to include children diagnosed with autism, predictions are that it will happen in 2012!

Follow North Carolina’s progress at Autism Speaks and on Facebook.

Virginia

Governor Bob McDonnell signed HB-1106 into law February 7, 2012, correcting a flaw that had been incorporated in Virginia’s 2011 autism insurance reform law.

The bill assures that providers of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) are covered under the law by establishing a state licensing procedure for ABA providers.

Summary:  Virginia enacted a law that ended discrimination against children diagnosed with autism but there was a large problem in the law.  BCBA’s were named as professionals to implement, design and oversee ABA programs but then required them to be licensed.  BCBA’s have a national certification.  As there was no licensing board in Virginia, this law was impossible to implement.  HB-1106 requires the Virginia Board of Medicine to develop licensing standards for BCBA to be implemented and monitored by the Board of Medicine. While the bill passed on 2/7/2012, the Board of Medicine has 280 days to develop the standard process.  It is projected that these standard are in place by June.
