The Ohio Autism Insurance Coalition formed in April 2017 and consists of a group of behavioral health organizations, individual practitioners, Regional Response Partners and families throughout Ohio who have partnered together to meet the purpose of the Coalition.
Ensure access to prescribed treatments for individuals with autism, developmental disabilities and mental health disorders including applied behavior analysis (ABA), speech therapy and other treatment modalities.
Be a resource for health insurance and public systems for autism treatments to consumers, employers, insurance carriers, providers, government, advocates, and educators.
Provide educational training to parents and stakeholders about accessing ABA and other treatments through insurance and public systems.
Collect data from individuals of all ages and all stakeholders of successes and challenges accessing prescribed treatments.
Impact public policy decisions in state regulations, laws, and funding that support building service capacity to meet the autism community needs.
The Coalition partners have pooled funds together to hire Root Consulting, LLC to implement goals set by the Coalition and manage the Coalition. The Coalition is not a formalized association or legal entity.
