Effective Jan. 1, all newly issued health insurance policies in New York must cover autism spectrum disorders. Gov. George Pataki signed the measure ordering the changes last September.

Autism spectrum disorders include a broad range of symptoms related to the patient’s condition. Insurers must now cover everything from speech therapy to MRIs.

One out of every 166 children is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.
