Autism Insurance Experts Partner with KNBC to Provide Advice to Parents of Children with Autism
Trumpet Behavioral Health Taking Parents’ Questions Live on NBC4 During the 5 p.m. Newscast on July 2, to Help Parents Understand Their Rights, Maximize Funding Options and Access Health Insurance Coverage for Their Child’s Autism Treatment
Families paying out-of-pocket costs for autism treatment will soon get much-needed relief when Senate Bill 946, dubbed the “Autism Bill,” takes effect on July 1. The new California Autism Insurance Mandate requires health plans to cover behavioral health treatments for children with autism as a medical benefit. But one of the state’s largest treatment providers says parents are not sure of what is covered, whether their insurance plan covers treatment or what they need to do to take advantage of the new mandate.
WHO: Trumpet Behavioral Health (TBH) provides autism treatment for children and adults at its centers and in schools and family homes. The Pleasanton, Calif.-based provider is already answering dozens of questions a day from concerned and confused parents.
WHAT: NBC4 Southern California (KNBC TV) will host California Autism Treatment and Insurance Specialists from Trumpet Behavioral Health to answer parents’ questions during the evening newscast in a special call center being set up at KNBC studios.
WHY: Parents are excited about the coming changes. But many families are not sure how to access their coverage or what specifically is covered by their insurance. Many need help understanding the complexities of the California Autism Insurance Mandate (Senate Bill 946).
WHEN: Monday, July 2, during the NBC4 News 5 p.m. newscast.
HOW: Visit www.NBCLosAngeles.com and watch NBC4 at 5 p.m. on July 2, for the phone number to call. Or send your questions in advance to NBC4 on Twitter @nbcla, on Facebook at facebook.com/NBCLA or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, visit www.MyAutismInsurance.com.
