Michigan families living with autism have been forced to grow their knowledge and understanding of what a “Self-Funded Company” means when verifying their insurance coverage for autism services. Relative to other states who have roughly 30% of companies who self-fund healthcare for their employees, Michigan is unique in that 75% of companies in Michigan are in fact self-funded. Our automotive headquarters in Michigan, among other industries, contribute to those large numbers. This high number of self-funded companies meant that after leading the charge on Michigan’s Insurance Legislation in 2012, AAoM was charged with working with Employers one by one, one employee family at a time, one company at a time, in collaboration with Michigan’s Department of Insurance. AAoM is proud of the work with 67 Companies in Michigan who have chosen to self-adopt autism benefits. We applaud the efforts and strides that United Healthcare has taken to make autism treatment a standard of care and look forward to hearing from Michigan families who are positively impacted by this change.

- My 19-year-old severely autistic son no longer sleeps at night. He stays awake at night and is very agitated. He does not sleep during the day either, so it is not as if he is mixing up his days and nights. He simply does not sleep at all. Any ideas on what can be done? I have tried melatonin, but it does not help at all. Any direction would be appreciated.
