A federal judge in Miami this week ruled that the state's Medicaid insurance program must pay for applied behavioral analysis for low-income children with autism. The state already requires private insurers to cover the therapy, and the judge ruled that less-affluent children should be entitled to the treatment as well. Some say the ruling could have implications in other states, where ABA therapy is not covered by similar programs for low-income residents.
