Governor Herbert’s Ceremonial Signing of HB88 and SB57

This week we attended the Ceremonial Signing of HB88 and SB57. The event was emotional and extremely fulfilling. After years of effort, insurance coverage for assessment, and treatment of autism will be provided for children up to 10 years of age in the state of Utah. The coverage includes ABA, DIR/Floortime, (A HUGE GAIN FOR FAMILY CHOICE) Speech, OT, PT, and other medically necessary interventions. It is a major victory, albeit an incomplete one. In the coming years, the community will continue to fight for an expansion of SB57, to include older children and to require self-insured businesses and Universities (USU, U of U, BYU, UVU, etc) to provide coverage.
