Aug. 12, 2014
"[The Oregon District Court] ruled Aug. 8 that the insurer's failure to cover applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy violated the federal mental health parity act, because it imposed a treatment limitation on mental health benefits that didn't apply to other types of benefits. The coverage denials also violated Oregon law mandating mental health parity and coverage for minors with developmental disorders, the court determined." [A.F. v. Providence Health Plan, No. 3:13-cv-00776-SI (D. Ore. Aug. 8, 2014)]
