2014 Statewide Autism Study

A study of services and insurance coverage for the treatment of autism spectrum disorders for children took place in South Dakota in 2014. The study was enacted by the S.D. Legislature that year with the passage of Senate Bill 108 and was conducted jointly by two state departments, which issued a request for proposals seeking implementation of a statewide study. Health Management Associates was selected to conduct the study, and a final report was issued to the Governor and Legislature in November 2014.
