Last week, a federal judge in Portland ruled that Providence Health Plans cannot deny coverage for a specific kind of autism treatment called Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Following the ruling, Oregon’s insurance commissioner put out a statement saying that the Insurance Division will issue a bulletin clarifying state policy on coverage requirements for ABA.

We’ll check in with Oregon Insurance Commissioner Laura Cali about the ruling and some other topics that have been in the news lately, such as new insurance rates for individual health plans, a proposal to regulate provider networks, and more.

What questions do you have for Laura Cali?
