Autism services provided across the country were not created equal

No two states provide the same services and support for people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). There are differences in what coverage benefits are included in the health plans, including Medicaid and Medicare.

Different states are more supportive and provide more resources for autistic people and their families than others. Those more supportive states are able to provide medical coverage, like Medicaid, that covers different needs that are deemed medically necessary.

At the end of the day, it is always a good idea to talk to the physician of the person you suspect has autism to ask for support. The physician can start assessing the individual and also point you in a direction or person that can answer your questions, no matter what state you are located in.
