Lawsuit challenges California insurers' denial of autism therapy

California regulations that allow insurers to deny treatment coverage to children with autism violate state laws, a consumer group contends in a lawsuit. Insurers say they are following the law and covering most autism care. They say they are allowed to deny coverage for applied behavior analysis because it is too expensive and is educational rather than medical. Los Angeles Times

$70,000 per child for a year? Wow. No wonder they don't want to pay, that's a lot of money for a single student.
