HHS on Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services published this report to increase transparency re enforcement of the Paul Wellstone and Pete Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008. MHPAEA generally prohibits group health plans and health insurance issuers that provide mental health or substance use disorder benefits from imposing less favorable benefit limitations on those benefits than on medical/surgical benefits.
