In 2010, Massachusetts passed the ARICA law, which mandated that insurance providers in the state cover ABA services for individuals with ASD, without age or expense limitations. From the time a child receives a diagnosis on the autism spectrum, until s/he is an adult, ABA services are considered a medically necessary intervention, and most medical insurance companies in the state cover them. Research shows that 20-40 hours of ABA therapy per week lead to positive outcomes for young children with autism. Older children continue to benefit from ABA even when they receive many other services in school. The ARICA law allows families to access these services without taking on a financial burden. Parents and guardians should contact SSAC with any questions about coverage under their particular insurance provider. The staff at SSAC carry out the necessary processes to initiate access to the services under each provider.
