FEHB will Offer Autism Coverage in 2017

April 12, 2016

For the first time, all Federal Employee Health Benefits (FEHB) plans are required to cover applied behavior analysis (ABA) benefits for children on the autism spectrum.

“Until now, FEHB coverage has been uneven for this intense one-on-one therapy that is becoming a leading form of treatment for these children...Ultimately, we decided the best way to ensure that our Federal families have the coverage they need was to expect every plan to cover it. This way, all employees with children on the autism spectrum will have this coverage under their plan,” Acting OPM Director Beth Cobert.
