Autism Mandate Summit Video

On September 28th, a public meeting was held to discuss upcoming changes to health insurance coverage for autism.  This page contains links to the video recording of that meeting.

Jon Owen, giving an overview of insurance coverage for autism in Utah

Note:  It's mentioned in this video that the definition of a small group plan was to change on January 1, 2016 from 2-50 to 2-100.  With the passage of the Pace Act, this definition is now left up to individual states.  To date, it appears that Utah is sticking with the 2-50 definition.
