Advocacy in Action. 10 October 2012 @ 4:28 pm.
Autism Speaks and MedClaims Liaison, a patient advocacy company, are jointly conducting our second survey of the autism community to better understand the challenges that families confront in getting properly reimbursed for medical care and therapies related to autism.
The survey should only take a few moments of your time and for every survey that is completed and submitted, MedClaims Liaison will make a donation to Autism Speaks!
Autism Speaks’ participation in this survey is not an endorsement of MedClaims Liaison or its services. The survey results will help Autism Speaks understand how well we are educating the autism community about insurance reform, and strengthen the data presented to state lawmakers as we continue to press for reform in the remaining 18 states.
We respect your privacy. Your answers will be kept strictly confidential.
|Here is How YOU Can Help:
|To complete the survey, simply go here. Please note that the study is designed to obtain data on one child with autism per family. If you have more than one child with autism, please take the survey with one of them specifically in mind as you answer the questions.
We want to make sure that we continue to meet the needs of the community and improve the health care coverage for individuals with autism nationwide.
By completing this survey, you will provide us with valuable information regarding what is working in the 32 states that have implemented insurance reform laws, conditions in the 18 states without such laws and where our community still faces challenges.
Thank you so much for your time and participation!
Director, Grassroots Development
