Mental Health America Seeks Stories About Parity Violations

Mental Health America (MHA) is asking behavioral health care consumers or providers who have experienced a parity violation – that is, insurance plans denying or more strictly managing behavioral health treatment services than other services covered in the plan – to submit their stories via email. MHA writes: “Although the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA) was enacted over four years ago, a final rule implementing the law has not yet been issued.” MHA is hoping to make sure these practices are clearly prohibited in the final rule by asking those who have experienced parity violations to report them to the Administration. For more information, see the source below.
