Michigan Blue Cross agrees to provide limited benefits to autistic insureds

On June 20, 2009, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan agreed to pay one million dollars to settle a class action brought by 100 Michigan families.  The families had argued that the health insurer should be providing coverage for behavioral therapy to young children diagnosed with autism.  Most private Michigan health insurers do not provide coverage for autism, however, BCBS announced in May that it would provide limited coverage for intensive early intervention.
