Autism Speaks and MedClaims Liaison, the patient advocacy company, are jointly conducting this survey to better understand the challenges that families confront in getting properly reimbursed for medical care and therapies related to autism. For every survey that is completed and submitted, MedClaims Liaison will make a donation to Autism Speaks.

Autism Speaks’ participation in this survey is not an endorsement of MedClaims Liaison or its services.  The survey results will help Autism Speaks understand how well it is educating the autism community about insurance reform, provide direction for an insurance tool kit that is in development, and strengthen the data presented to state lawmakers in support of autism insurance reform.

We respect your privacy and your answers will be kept strictly confidential. Thank you for your participation.
