Environmental Health:

Environmental and health advocacy groups have sued the Obama administration over its rejection of tougher standards on ozone pollution, arguing that the move endangers public health, John M. Broder reports for the New York Times.

Autism: A new California law requires insurers to cover often-costly behavioral therapy for autistic children, although it's not yet clear how health reform's rollout will affect whether the law stays in place, Victoria Colliver reports for the San Francisco Chronicle.

Place and Health: White and black Americans who live in low-income neighborhoods share some of the same health disparities, according to a new study that suggests where a person lives can affect health more than race or income, Robert Preidt reports for HealthDay. The study appears in Health Affairs.

Medicare: A new Medicare benefit under health reform pays for annual "wellness" visits, but federal data shows that few seniors are using the benefit, Frank Gluck reports for the (Fort Myers, Fla.) News-Press.
