We Need Your Help...Sign to Add ABA Therapy Under the Affordable Care Act

We’ve reached 2,000 signatures. But we cannot reach our goal without yours. 

Please join the autism community in signing the petition to add ABA therapy under the Affordable Care Act. 

Click this link to sign it now: http://tinyurl.com/d5nftgo 

This petition urges Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius to specify that applied behavior analysis (ABA) is part of the essential health benefits in the Affordable Care Act. Without further guidance from Secretary Sebelius, each state will decide whether ABA-based treatment for individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) is covered as a behavioral health treatment.




After you sign the petition right now, urge others to do the same.
