The state insurance commission said a new law about mental health coverage requires the insurer to provide certain behavioral therapies, including applied behavioral analysis therapy.
Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones said his department took action against the insurer in July to get Tuesday's settlement that promises the insurer will comply with the state's Mental Health Parity law.
Blue Shield said it has been providing the coverage since July. The new settlement confirms that the coverage will continue, according to the state.
