PA Autism Insurance Act (Act 62)

In Pennsylvania, your child's autism-related services may be covered by private health insurance, Medical Assistance (MA) or the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) under Pennsylvania's Autism Insurance Act (ACT 62). ACT 62 is a statewide insurance mandate specific to services provided to children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

The Department of Human Services (DHS), Pennsylvania Insurance Department (PID), and Department of State (DOS) are working together to fully implement Act 62. A number of new resources have been developed to provide guidance to families about ACT 62.

 The documents on this page provide important information and resources about the Autism Insurance Act, and new resources continue to be developed. We encourage you to visit this page regularly for the most up-to-date resources.

What to do if your child is enrolled in Medical Assistance and you have concerns about Applied Behavioral Analysis:  If you are having a problem getting Applied Behavioral Analysis (“ABA” ) for your child that you have not been able to resolve with your Behavioral Health Managed Care Organization or the county, you may contact  717-409-3791 or ABA@pa.gov.
