Who Pays for Early Implementation of the NYS Autism Mandate?

Excellus BCBS has begun implementing the NYS Autism mandate for all fully insured group health plans. Your clients may have questions because this is an earlier implementation than is required for many groups.

The mandate must be in place by 11/1/12 or the next renewal date after that. Excellus BCBS chose the earliest date to ensure a more uniform implementation, and will cover the costs of providing coverage in the interim period. The 2013 rates reflect the increased cost associated with the mandate, but there will be no extra charge to groups before their plan’s renewal date.

If you have any questions, please contact your Account Consultant.
