Report to Congress: 2022 Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act
The Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services and the Treasury issued their 2022 Report to Congress on the Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008. The report includes information indicating that many health plans and health insurers are failing to deliver coverage parity for mental health and substance use disorder benefits, something that is required by federal law. The information included on this report will be used by AHPA as we advocate for policies that advance behavioral health. This report is particularly valuable at this time, when Congress is holding several hearings with the goal of passing a mental health and substance use legislative package this year.
