Wellspring Coordinates With CA Health Insurance Plans to Pay for Autism Treatments
Date:5/27/2009

LOS ANGELES, May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Autism is a neurobiological condition which is often responsive to Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy, yet some health insurance companies, especially HMOs, fail to cover this service as a covered benefit to their members. Wellspring, a leader in autism treatment, is excited to offer a seminar that instructs parents how to coordinate with their CA health insurance plan to cover autism treatments. By utilizing health insurance, a child's therapy is protected from being slashed by state budget cuts or legislation that restricts the Regional Centers from fully funding treatment.

Dr. Karen Fessel and Feda Almaliti are the keynote speakers! One attendee from a previous seminar remarked, "The speakers were informative and downright inspiring!"

Karen Fessel, Dr PH

Karen Fessel is the proud parent of a 14 year old son with Asperger's, and a 10 year old typical daughter. Karen has a Doctorate in Public Health from UC Berkeley. Karen has completed the complicated process and was granted approval for her son to receive the proper care through three different insurance companies.

Feda Almaliti

Feda Almaliti's youngest son was diagnosed with autism at 18 months and since then she has fought tirelessly to get him the help he needs. She worked her way through the formal Kaiser appeals process and had her Independent Medical Review (IMR) approved. Her son now receives 26 hours of ABA, 2 hours of speech therapy, and 2 hours of occupational therapy, weekly.

This team has lead parents in the biggest wins in the state of California related to autism therapy: securing 40 hours a week of ABA in coordination with health plans!
