Ten years have passed since Behavioral Health Parity became federal law.
Yet today, too many people still cannot get the treatment they need because of discriminatory insurance rules.
Last week, the "New York Parity at 10 Coalition" led by the Legal Action Center, including The Coalition, met with state officials from Governor Cuomo's Office and leadership from the NYS Department of Health (DOH), Department of Financial Services (DFS), Office of Mental Health (OMH), Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) and Division of Budget (DOB) about ongoing efforts and additional steps to end discrimination in mental health and addiction insurance coverage.
Advocates in New York are taking the stand for millions of people to get the care they need. To help us advocate and to look at the new website launched by Parity at 10, log in to www.parityat10.org.
