On Feb. 18, 2015, the Alaska Division of Insurance published Bulletin B 15-05. The bulletin applies to insurers and relates to coverage of services relating to behavior analysis and other autism service providers, as required by Alaska law. According to the bulletin, denying a claim solely on the basis that a behavioral analyst is not licensed in Alaska is a violation of Alaska law. An insurer’s failure to promptly pay such claims may also result in late payment interest penalties.
Although the bulletin applies to insurers, employers in Alaska should be aware of the bulletin and the coverage requirements relating to behavior analysis and autism service providers, particularly those that may not be licensed in Alaska.
