To advocate for access to effective autism treatment

The National Coalition for Access to Autism Services (NCAAS) is the voice of service providers and other constituents who help Americans with autism achieve their full potential.  NCAAS believes Americans with autism deserve affordable coverage that ensures access to quality treatment.  NCAAS members provide services to individuals across a range of private and public programs, including commercial insurance through employer-sponsored plans and the individual market, Medicaid, Medicaid managed care, and TRICARE. 

The NCAAS community represents thousands of Americans affected by autism spectrum disorder and the professionals who provide the services and supports they need to reach their full potential. Our goal is to ensure that their voices are heard and their needs are met.

Together, we reviewed health care policies and proposals, identified concerns, and articulated a strategy to preserve access to autism services and supports.
