State of Missouri Reaches a $4.5 Million Settlement with Aetna Life Insurance Company and Aetna Health Insurance Company
May 19 15
State of Missouri has reached a $4.5 million settlement with Aetna Life Insurance Company and Aetna Health Insurance Company after the companies failed to provide coverage for the diagnosis and treatment of autism spectrum disorders. The settlement, which includes Missouri's large fine ever for insurance law violations, also allows the Missouri Department of Insurance to suspend those companies from doing business in the state for up to one year, if they violate the agreement during a three-year monitoring period. In 2010, Gov. Nixon spearheaded the bi-partisan effort to pass the law mandating the coverage of autism diagnosis and treatment. For the first time, insurance companies were required to cover one of the most highly effective types of therapy, Applied Behavioral Analysis, or ABA. While effective, the cost of ABA can exceed tens of thousands of dollars a year, making insurance coverage necessary for most families. The settlement, in which Aetna admitted it failed to offer autism coverage in some cases, includes a $4.5 million fine and the requirement that Aetna subject itself to a corrective action plan and three years of monitoring by the Department of Insurance. A portion of the fine, $1.5 million, will be suspended if Aetna complies with the settlement agreement. In 2012, the two Aetna companies also admitted to violating the autism mandate and paid a $1.5 million fine under a settlement agreement with the Department of Insurance. The companies were required to undertake a full and complete audit to ensure compliance with all Missouri insurance mandates. Aetna admits it did not undertake that full compliance audit.
