Autism rates have exploded nationally from 1 in 166 children to 1 in 59 over the last 15 years. This statistic alone makes it incumbent upon all health care attorneys to prepare their clients, whether it be clinicians, provider organizations or payors to understand: the scope of services available for treatment and payment under various state and federal laws; the role schools play; the standards developing in the court system for the payment of medically necessary services. Beyond treatment and payment, it is also incumbent upon health care attorneys to understand the heightened interest among private equity firms in the autism services space and prepare their provider clients to efficiency access growth capital and prepare for liquidity events, should one desire. Why is the sector so attractive and why does it garner the attention of private equity investors?
