Fiscal Note Summary

Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.

    The purpose of this bill is to clean up the autism bill passed during the 2011 regular session to clarify some of the requirements, namely that evaluation of autism is covered and specifications as to who files progress reports. The bill also makes other technical cleanup.
    This legislation clarifies the annual maximum benefit for applied behavior analysis shall be in an amount not to exceed $30,000 per individual, for three consecutive years from the date treatment commences.
