The Act Relative to Insurance Coverage for Autism (ARICA) law requires most health insurers in Massachusetts to provide coverage of ABA services for the diagnosis and treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Coverage of ABA services under ARICA is dependent on the insurance policy you have. Self-funded plans regulated by Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) are not subject to following state laws and therefore are not required to provide coverage under ARICA. Verify with your employer whether your insurance policy is subject to ARICA coverage, and if so, acquire the date your group policy renews. Many companies with insurance policies regulated by ERISA still provide coverage under ARICA. Additionally, Mass Health now provides coverage of ABA services, co-payments, and deductibles.
