Autism Therapy Insurance Cancelled

Here is a video of a mother of who had her child’s autism therapy insurance cancelled.

This video illustrates the frustration a mom goes through one day when her sons autism therapy insurance cancelled coverage. Out of the blue her  insurance company decides they have paid enough and do not want to spend any more money on therapy they had previously covered. When you reach that point it doesn’t matter how much success or progress you’ve made or even how dire the circumstances are, your child has no more value in the eyes of the insurance company.

Watch the video in honor of Autism Awareness Month but also in honor of this brave woman who is up against the giant insurance industry in a battle to bring wellness to her child.

April is Autism Awareness Month for the Nation but I’m aware of it 24/7 as a parent having a child with Autism. For me today was just another day of the same old bureaucracy and discrimination that gets slapped in my face. Usually I deal with it on my own and keep private about how unjust life is for him. In honor of this month I decided to allow outsiders to have a peek inside of our family’s world.

How do you think you would handle it if you had a child who needed treatment and your autism therapy insurance company cancelled your policy. Please share this video, keep recognition of Autism Awareness Month alive and hopeful someday we can all get together and decide the treatment individuals should not be denied because an insurance company decides the child is financially nonviable.
