Public vs. Private Insurance: Cost, Use, Accessibility, and Outcomes of Services for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders

Authored by Young, A., Ruble L., and McGrew J. in Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders, Volume 3, Issue 4, p. 1023-1033, (2009).

Article summary (posted Oct 1, 2010):


Children with autism who have public insurance seem to do as well as children with autism who have private insurance.

There are very few studies that look at how the type of insurance a family has affects the therapy received by a child with autism. The purpose of this study was to compare families with public and private insurance to see the services that they received for their children with autism. In the state of Kentucky, families with public and private insurance had the same out-of-pocket expense, service use, and mixture of services used.
