Earlier this week, a bill -- known as Steven's Law -- was signed into law by Arizona's governor. The bill would require insurance companies in the state to provide coverage for autism treatment. While some are hailing the passage, others say states should not mandate what insurance companies can and can't cover. Where do you stand on the issue?

CNN just did a program on Autism. It costs parents an average of $50,000 per year for a child with autism. This covers therapies, nutritonal needs and more.

I do actually think Autism needs should be covered. If insurance companies had their way, they'd cover nothing :)
