Autism Activist Excited About New Law


Dodge City, KS (westernkansasnews.com) Her reaction was pure jubilation.

A six and a half year battle ended last week when Jeanie Zortman attended Governor Brownback’s signing ceremony requiring insurance companies to help cover basic treatment for autism. Zortman’s battle with Autism is a personal story.

Zortman explains what is in the new law.

Zortman says early intervention for autism can cost from 40 to 65 thousand dollars.  This law now gives hope that insurance companies can financially help parents of an autistic child.
