INSURANCE, FINALLY! OF COURSE, THIS IS AFTER WE ARE ALL BANKRUPT, BUT I’LL TAKE IT!!

Holy Mother Love, they have FINALLY passed ARICA in the MA senate!!!  Our state has become one of the 20+ that have passed Autism insurance reform bills, and I could NOT BE MORE ECSTATIC!

Hurry up and enforce it now, because Mama wants to make an appointment for Ro’s re-eval, and I haven’t been able to do it for a long time, due to the $3,000+ price tag!

I can’t even express how unbelievable it will be to not have to choose between OT, speech, ABA, evaluations needed for proper education, etc. etc. etc. etc…….

I know that it won’t be perfect, and I’m sure we will still be handing over the bills for something (copays, coinsurance, etc.) but at least it will be a recognized covered condition now!

SO happy for all of the children and families that will be helped by this.  NOW, let all other states/countries follow suit!

No child should be denied medical care because of creative tactics and sneaky wording of diagnoses.  Just shameful that they have been allowed to do this for so long, but so thankful that we are moving forward now 🙂

Yay Mass!  Mami loves!!!  XOXOXO

BECAUSE MY BOO WILL BE 18 SOMEDAY!!!

Who knows what support he will need at that time, but this worries Mama’s butt to no end (pun intended – I like puns).  I’m trying to divide my focus between the needs of today and the possible needs of…omg, Papi is going to be a man someday!

He may be a rocket scientist or the next Jacques Cousteau by then, but if he still needs support, it should be there!
