The Missouri House and Senate yesterday overwhelmingly passed legislation mandating that insurers cover some of the costs of treating children with autism.

The bill requires state-regulated insurers to provide at least $40,000 annually for autism treatment. Still many insurance companies (60 percent of those that operate in Missouri) won't be impacted by the bill because they're self-funded insurers and not backed by the state.
