Top 10 Disorders; Guess which one is not covered.

Below is a post from a mother in the Kansas City area. She posted a comment on an article from

Our kids in KS & MO need this help... did you know that of the 12 common neurologic disorders (listed below), AUTISM IS THE ONLY ONE NOT COVERED BY PRIVATE INSURANCE IN KANSAS.

1. autism spectrum disorders
2. cerebral palsy
3. tourette syndrome
4. migraine
5. epilepsy
6. multiple sclerosis
7. traumatic brain injury
8. spinal cord injury
9. ALS
10. stroke
11. Alzheimer disease
12. Parkinson disease

And the more help young Autistic kids get the more functioning they are as adults - so we pay a little now & then don't have to pay a lot later! It only makes sense!
