Earlier this week, Autism Society President and CEO, Scott Badesch, travelled to Austin, Texas to testify before the Texas House of Representatives.  Mr. Badesch testified in support of House Bill 3276, which will provide insurance coverage for autism screening at 18 and 24 months and remove the age restrictions currently in place for autism coverage.

HB 3276, introduced by Autism Society Board Vice Chairman, Congressman Ron Simmons, aims to remove barriers and improve access to autism screening and services.   

Mr. Badesch remarked following his testimony; “This bill represents an important step in removing barriers for those potentially affected by autism.  As we know, early screening, diagnosis, and access to appropriate services is vital for individuals to achieve the highest quality of life.  We at the Autism Society are proud of our Board Member, Congressmen Simmons and leadership the role he has taken on this important issue and will do all we can to actively support the passage of HB 3276.”
