Ask the Company/Human Resources Dept. (HR) for whom you work (where you receive your health benefits/insurance) if the plan your family has is a “Self Insured Plan.” If they tell you “Yes” – you are not eligible for benefits under Steven’s Law, however you may be eligible for certain therapies under the Mental Health portion of your benefits. Call your Mental Health benefit administrator for more information. If they tell you “No” go to step # 2.
