Goal: 20,000 Progress: 1,802
Sponsored by: The Autism Site

Families living and dealing with autism are facing yet another threat against their insurance coverage. A bill was recently passed in Arizona that would now require families to pay for autism treatments and care largely out of pocket. SB 1593 would nullify previous legislation that allowed families to be reimbursed for autism therapies.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has the power to stand up for families living with autism by vetoing this legislation. If she doesn't, many families will be left with few options as to how to cover their autism therapy costs.

Ask Governor Brewer to do the right thing and fight for families living with autism.

Dear Governor Brewer:

I am writing to request that you oppose a discriminatory piece of legislation that was recently passed in Arizona. SB 1593, if enacted into law, would make it so that many families who are now receiving insurance coverage for autism therapies will now have to pay largely out of pocket for the same treatments.

This is completely unfair. Those with autism are continuously discriminated against by the insurance industry, which often claims insuring autism treatment is simply "too expensive." But putting the burden of these costs on families is no way to handle the problem.

Please use your legislative power to oppose SB 1593 and fight for families who are struggling with autism today.
