Update on SB55

SB55 was substituted this morning with a bill that appropriates more money to the pilot program created last year and increases the age cap from age 5 to age 7. Insurance coverage for autism in Utah will not happen this year.

Thank you all for your advocacy and please thank Senator Shiozawa for his incredibly hard work on this initiative. He is dedicated to working on insurance coverage for autism again next year and has done a tremendous job advocating for our children.
