AUTISM HEALTH INSURANCE PROJ...

Autism Insurance

Helping families secure health insurance coverage for autism related interventions.

The Autism Health Insurance Project was founded to support families in their journey through the insurance maze, to ensure they are treated fairly and to insist that children with autism receive coverage for interventions that they so desperately need.

Founder Karen Fessel began the Autism Health Insurance Project after experiencing hoe the health plans handled her own son's autism.  The health plans repeatedly lost documents, they would not respond to her questions, they had no qualified experts in their networks, and they didn’t want to help her son get the care that his doctors felt were medically necessary.  The regulators were often unhelpful during those early years, as well.  “The Health Plans would tell them blatant lies, and they would believe it without question.  I remember thinking the regulators were either shockingly naïve or in cahoots.”  There was nowhere to turn for help or information.
