The Autism Insurance Resource Center provides information to the public about insurance coverage under a new law, An Act Relative to Insurance Coverage for Autism (ARICA), which took effect in Massachusetts on January 1, 2011. There are many questions relating to the implementation of the law, e.g., to whom, ARICA applies, what treatments are covered and how to access coverage. The Center, a new program of INDEX, is designed to provide information and support for self-advocates, family members, providers, employers and educators on issues related to medical insurance for autism treatment. Sign-up for updates to ARICA.
