Mental Health Parity

NAMISMARTS for Advocacy:  Filing a Mental Health Parity Violation

Taught by Sita Diehl, former State Policy Director for the National Alliance on Mental Illness

Are you seeking treatment to improve your mental health? Are you interested in treatment for a substance use disorder?  If you or someone you know falls into one of these categories, you should plan to attend an upcoming meeting on fairness in health coverage.

Learn what mental health parity (mental health and substance use conditions) is, how to identify a violation and file a complaint.  Mental health providers are encouraged to attend so that they can help their clients identify and file violations as well.
