Requires a health benefit plan to provide coverage to an enrollee who is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder from the date of diagnosis until the enrollee completes nine years of age. If an enrollee who is being treated for autism spectrum disorder becomes 10 years of age or older and continues to need treatment, this does not preclude coverage of treatment and services. Treatment may include services such as: evaluation and assessment services; applied behavior analysis; behavior training and behavior management; speech therapy; occupational therapy; physical therapy; or medications or nutritional supplements used to address symptoms of autism spectrum disorder.
