Employees with special-needs kids get improved medical coverage

Parents of disabled kids who work for data management firm NetApp have access to enhanced health benefits to cover speech, occupational and physical therapy.

The Sunnyvale, Calif., organization’s medical plan once covered those therapies only if they were “restorative” in nature. But that often meant that children born with congenital conditions couldn’t qualify—they couldn’t be “restored” to some previous healthy state. After parents complained, the organization worked with its insurance provider to override the limitation, says PR Manager David Naumann.

Now, any child up to 12 years old who is diagnosed with a developmental delay or disorder is covered.
