In January 2012, the Virginia legislature signed a law stating that insurance companies must provide coverage for autism services. However millions of families are discovering with the roll out of Obamacare, they won't be able to keep their insurance plans that would pay for those services.
Obamacare virtually makes the Virginia law pointless. Signing up to get on the government plan - aka Obamacare - is next to impossible. Of the tens of millions who tried to sign on the first day, only six actually got through.
With that kind of service, one can only imagine the quality of healthcare services that will actually be given. As President Obama and his Health and Human Services Secretary Sebelius admit, you may not be able to keep your doctor. Make that probably.
That Terry McAuliffe stands by this sinking ship called Obamacare shows that he lacks a basic understanding of how this law has greatly damaged the prospects of getting quality services for those with autism.
Ken Cuccinelli supports letting individuals have a choice in selecting health insurance policies that are specifically design to meet the needs of families caring for those with autism.
"I would like to have insurance companies offer a plan with transparent pricing so that individuals can choose," he told the Autism Society of Northern Virginia.
Transparency - that is, openness and honesty -in matters involving health insurance and healthcare is non-existent in this disastrous social experiment that is Obamacare. Virginia needs a governor who will push back against this government intrusion in its citizens' private lives.
Virginians, especially those of us who care for those with autism, need Ken Cuccinelli for governor.
