Experts estimate that 1 in 91 children will be diagnosed with autism this year. Imagine a world where every one of these kids can get the therapy and services they need. Autism Deserves Equal Coverage (ADEC) advocates can work with you and help you find the help your child needs.
What We Do
We advocate and work with providers, families, therapists, ABA agencies, Regional Centers and other organizations in securing insurance to cover medically necessary treatments for autism, including ABA, Speech, OT, PT, Social Skills, and Evaluations.
We negotiate with health plans, insurance companies, and state and federal regulators to fund services for autism spectrum disorder.
We take on the work so that families and providers can focus on what they do best: Caring for children.
