Is an autopsy required in all cases?
No. Deaths caused by violence, state custody deaths, and unexplained deaths will be sent to the State Crime Lab for an autopsy. Other deaths are determined on a case by case basis and may or may not require the State Crime Lab. Most medical and unattended deaths do not require an autopsy.

My ex-SIL was found dead on her kitchen floor by one of her grown sons (in Arkansas). The family couldn't afford an autopsy, so none was performed; that was the first time I ever heard of the family cost for the process.
As I understand there’s a cost for the family if it’s just them requesting the post mortem. If it’s law enforcement or public health ordering it then it wouldn’t be billed to the family.
My great uncle was found dead on his kitchen floor by his brother. If I remember right he wasn’t responding to phone calls so his brother went to check on him and found him. No autopsy was done - he had health issues so even though his passing wasn’t expected at the time our family knew he could’ve gone. He had been looking at going into a senior community when he died.
And five years ago Saturday my uncle died. It was completely unexpected. He stroked out. My aunt found him and they rushed him to the hospital but he died soon after arrival. The doctor said it was likely quick and painless. No autopsy there either cause the doctors knew what took him out.
