Webinar on Autism and Insurance Who pays for what services?

Thursday, November 19, 2015

Join us to learn:

  • About regional centers’ requirement that you access your private insurance for certain services
  • What to do if your insurer denies cover- age for an autism-related service
  • About co-insurance, co-payments, and deductibles

    This FREE webinar is designed for family mem- bers, people with developmental disabilities, and advocates. It will include a presentation and Q & A session. Professionals are welcome to attend; however, questions from family members and consumers will be given priority.

Our speaker Katie Hornberger is a disability rights attorney and the Director of the Office of Clients’ Rights Advocacy (OCRA).


You will need a computer with internet access to view the presentation. You may listen using a phone or your computer speakers.
