MHPAEA Final Rule Overview

November 26th, 2013 by Chloe Morgan

Please see the final regulations regarding the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act. –  The Paul Wellstone and Pete Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) became Public Law 110-343 in October 2008. MHPAEA, or the federal parity law, seeks to eliminate discriminatory access to mental health and substance use disorder (MH and SUD) benefits in certain health insurance coverage. Plans subject to the federal parity law are precluded from providing MH and SUD benefits in a more restrictive way than other covered medical and surgical  benefits.
