Parents File Lawsuit for Therapy Coverage

A couple is battling for their their son a lawsuit against the state Ohio.  Robert and Holly Young, parents of a two year old autistic boy, are fighting to have their son receive applied behavioral analysis.  Their son has been diagnosed with moderate to severe autism. State attorneys have argued that the law does not specifically state that Robert and Holly Young's son receive coverage for applied behavioral analysis.  The lawsuit was filed days before the governor of Ohio, John Kasich, expressed his interest and support for a program that would require health insurance companies to cover therapy and treatment for those on the autism spectrum.  This plan is slated to go into effect in 2014.

I hope that the Young family prove successful and are able to give their son the best life possible.  Click on the following link to read more about this story:
