Workshop Planned on New Autism Insurance

The Pervasive Parenting Center (PPC) and Oklahomans for Autism Insurance Reform will host a workshop next month to provide insurance training to families in eastern Oklahoma. 

The organizations will present a workshop on the new autism insurance laws recently passed with House Bill 2962, and answer questions. The workshop will be held at 6 p.m. Sept. 15 at Carl Albert State College in Sallisaw.

“The new laws go into effect in November,” said Kodey Toney, PPC director. “There are still a lot of questions that many people, myself included, have about what this covers and what it can mean for our children and family members. That’s why I’m so glad they contacted us to set this up.”

The event is free and is open to all parents, professionals, educators, and care-providers.

“(I want to say) a huge thank you to Judith Ursitti with Autism Speaks for speaking at these events and leading us as we begin the important implementation phase,” said Tara Hood, head of the Oklahomans for Autism Insurance Reform.
