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

IT’S A START

Too bad it’s too late for us with that fourth bullet point, but at least things are moving in the right direction.

Now, can we PLEASE pass the bill in ALL states to require insurance to pay for autism therapies!!?!??

Here’s The Autism Society’s article on the health care reform and how it will affect those with autism concerns…

READ IT AND LOVE IT, BABY!!!  READ IT AND LOVE!!

Now, Ronan James voted for McCain in the school-wide mock election.  After weeks of Obama Mama rhyming songs, all of my training went down the drain!! 

Who did you vote for, Ro?

I voted for John McCain!

RONAN!  After my weeks of training!!  NO!  WHY??!!

I like his name.  It’s easy to say.

Sigh…
