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.
Using Insurance to Pay for Autism When: June 11, 2009, 7-9pm Where: Courtyard Marriott, 2100 Empire Ave, Burbank, CA 91504 Register: go to www.wellspring.com
Dr. Karen Fessel and Feda Almaliti are the keynote speakers! One attendee from a previous seminar remarked, "The speakers were informative and downright inspiring!"

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.
