Good Story About Autism Legislation on Fox 4 KC
John Combest linked today to a very well-written story by Fox 4 in Kansas City. I commend them for asking tough question about the autism legislation that is almost certainly going to be passed and signed into law this year. The answer to the Fox question is that yes, autism mandates will cause premiums to rise for everyone. It may well be a very small increase, and the public good of covering autism may indeed be worth it, but let’s not pretend that this legislation won’t increase insurance costs for everyone.
