This site was designed as a collaborative portal to maintain information about the Michigan autism insurance legislation benefit. With the passage of the legislation in Michigan on March 29, 2012, the Autism Alliance of Michigan (AAoM) has taken a leadership role in bringing key stakeholders together, defining how the service delivery model will be staged. Recently workshops were convened to provide and exchange information about the insurance bill language and to educate universities and providers as to how the legislation impacts the future delivery of evidence-based treatments for autism. The following key areas were discussed: university programs and capacity and how to expand programming for Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs), BCBA program requirements, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) overview and procedures, insurance requirements and codes, provider program expansion, and more.
