Autism Report & ABA Limits
House Bill 1311 requires Missouri health insurers to provide coverage for autism in general, and for applied behavior analysis (ABA) for insureds 18 years of age and younger. An initial annual limit for ABA was set at $40,000 per year. The law requires that the Department of Insurance annually adjust the $40,000 ABA coverage limit for inflation. For 2013, it is $42,117.
