Gov. Cuomo Takes Big Step to Support the Disabled

Nov. 9, 2011   In a strong show of support for the disabled populations of New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a law on November 1, 2011 that will require health insurance providers to offer coverage for the diagnosis and treatment of autism spectrum disorder. This sensitivity to the special needs of people with disabilities bodes well for the developmentally disabled citizens of the New York, particularly the medically fragile children within this population, as the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) continues its work to reshape how healthcare services are delivered to the developmentally disabled through the 1115 Waiver.
