Marla Root Receives "2021 Milestones Professional Trailblazer Award"

Autism Advocate Works Towards Accessible Treatment and Insurance Services

COLUMBUS, OHIO, UNITED STATES, June 17, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Marla Root, Founder and Director of the Ohio and Illinois Autism Insurance Coalitions, is the 2021 recipient of the Milestones Professional Trailblazer Award. The award was presented at the virtual Milestones Autism Conference, held June 16-17, 2021. Root was recognized for her unrelenting focus for families and Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) providers to assist in helping to navigate insurance funded treatments for individuals on the autism spectrum.

Marla was a speaker for the virtual 2021 Milestones National Autism Conference. Her presentation, Autism Insurance Services including Telehealth in a Post-Pandemic World, focused on four key areas: identifying health insurance options such as covering ABA, speech, and occupational therapy services; identifying how telehealth may be a viable option for autism treatment delivery; advocating for access to focused ABA treatment throughout an individual’s lifespan; and identifying barriers to accessing treatment. Marla’s nominator had this to say about her: Through her tireless work and advocacy, I've seen individuals receive ABA through their insurance who previously never would have. These parents had tried for years without success to receive ABA, they had been connected with numerous providers, and had even changed insurance plans. Marla's extensive knowledge of the insurance system was the missing piece.

In 2016, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued their Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network autism prevalence report. The report concluded that the prevalence of autism had risen to 1 in every 54 births in the United States – nearly twice as great as the 2004 rate of 1 in 125 – and almost 1 in 34 boys. The spotlight shining on autism as a result has opened opportunities for the nation to consider how to serve families facing a lifetime of supports for their children. In the last seven years, researchers have determined the lifetime cost of caring for a child with autism is as great as $2.4 million. (This figure includes research, insurance cost and non-covered expenses, Medicaid waivers for autism, educational spending, housing, transportation, employment, related therapeutic services and caregiver cost.)

For over seventeen years, Marla has developed a passion for helping over a thousand families find answers to their questions and has assisted in mapping a path forward so they may advocate for the services they need. This is only the beginning, and continued funding is necessary. Root is on a mission to find supplemental gaps in the funding process and continue to navigate through insurance waters not only in Ohio and Illinois via county and state funds but nationally.

Marla’s twenty-five-year-old son Eli has severe autism and intellectual disability, which was the catalyst for her to both advocate for his services and become an administrator for a CARF-accredited mental health center. In 2016, she was an honored recipient of the Autism Speaks’ Implementation Award for developing the Coalition. SAnother area very personal to Root and her family is supporting families whose loved ones are experiencing a behavioral crisis and ensuring they have access stabilization services without giving up custody to the state to access treatment services. For over seventeen years, Marla has developed a passion for helping over a thousand families find answers to their questions and has assisted in mapping a path forward so they may advocate for the services they need. This is only the beginning, and continued funding is necessary. Root is on a mission to find supplemental gaps in the funding process and continue to navigate through insurance waters not only in Ohio and Illinois via county and state funds but nationally.

The Ohio and Illinois Autism Insurance Coalitions bring together the collective strength of like-minded practitioner organizations coming together to improve the landscape of private and public reimbursable insurance services for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), including applied behavior analysis (ABA), to those served in the States of Ohio & Illinois. Working alongside our Regional Response Partners including advocacy organizations and families, the Coalition receives feedback and data from around the state.

Attorney General Bonta: There’s No Room for Job Discrimination Loopholes in California

Attorney General files amicus brief highlighting harms of discriminatory pre-employment screenings and potential repercussions of lower court decision on Californians with disabilities

OAKLAND – California Attorney General Rob Bonta today — as a result of a federal class action lawsuit challenging allegedly discriminatory “pre-placement” medical inquiries and exams used as a condition of hiring — announced filing an amicus brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit explaining the state’s robust anti-discrimination protections under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). The underlying lawsuit alleges that U.S. Healthworks Medical Group — allegedly the largest provider of occupational health services in California — and its successors unlawfully required job applicants to answer highly intrusive, non-job-related, and discriminatory health questions on behalf of prospective employers, including information about menstrual issues, hair loss, and disability status. In the friend-of-the-court brief, Attorney General Bonta highlights the harms of pre-employment screenings that are discriminatory and points out the potential negative repercussions the lower court’s ruling may have on all Californians, particularly those with disabilities, if it is adopted by the Ninth Circuit. 

“Throughout California’s history, there have been far too many barriers in our workplaces meant to exclude women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and people with disabilities,” said Attorney General Bonta. “In the 21st century, we shouldn’t be making it easier to discriminate, but that’s exactly what the lower court’s ruling threatens to do. It threatens to undermine California’s anti-discrimination laws. People applying for regular jobs are entitled to basic protections and employment screenings have to be specifically related to the job at hand. Discriminatory, unlawful workplace practices place our communities at risk. And, in this context in particular, we need to make sure that job applicants with disabilities and other medical conditions aren’t being discriminated against. Everyone deserves a fair shot at a job.”

The class action suit, Raines v. U.S. Healthworks Medical Group, involves a challenge to the pre-employment screening practices conducted by a corporate third-party agent of employers, which allegedly included sensitive and intrusive questions as part of a medical questionnaire. For instance, plaintiffs in the case assert that job applicants were required to answer questions regarding disabilities, mental illness, sexually-transmitted diseases including HIV, and menstrual issues, hair loss, and hemorrhoids among other things. The plaintiffs further allege that, when one of the plaintiffs refused to answer a question relating to her menstruation, her offer of employment was subsequently revoked. However, the lower court held that the third-party agent conducting the screening could not be separately liable under FEHA, contrary to the purpose and plain language of the statute. In the amicus brief, the Attorney General pushes back on this interpretation, noting that it creates an overly broad exception that would allow an employer’s agent to evade liability for their own unlawful actions simply by claiming that they were executing the employer’s directives.

The California Department of Justice has a long-standing practice of defending Californians from employment discrimination, including on the grounds of disability status or medical conditions. In the amicus brief, Attorney General Bonta asserts:

  • FEHA’s statutory language provides for third-party agents to be held liable;
  • FEHA’s legislative history supports holding such agents liable;
  • Exceptions for individual supervisors cannot exempt third-party agents from FEHA liability in total; and
  • Californians experience harms from discriminatory practices, like unlawful pre-employment medical inquiries, prohibited under FEHA. 

A copy of the amicus brief is available here.
