Senate Bill 555 Autism Parity Insurance Hearing

Event Date: 

02/28/11

City: 

Salem

State: 

OR

The Senate Health Committee will have a second hearing on Monday, February 28th at 3pm to hear from those who are in opposition of Senate Bill 55 as written. Anyone who is available to attend the hearing should be at the Capitol by 2:30pm. Please wear red so that our legislators can clearly see in the audience that we are present as a unified group.

The hearing will be held at the Oregon State Capitol, 900 Court St. NE in Salem in Hearing Room A.

House Bill 2214 and Senate Bill 55 legislation would require Oregon private health insurance companies to cover the screening, diagnosis, testing and treatment of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). As an autism community I hope we are FOR the bills. Show up on Monday not to speak in opposition, but to show SUPPORT for the bills by wearing red.
