Mental Health Parity


Mental Health Parity is when insurance plans treat behavioral health

conditions in the same way as physical health conditions. The Mental

Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) of 2008 required most

health insurance companies to provide equal coverage for behavioral health

conditions. However, there are some exceptions depending on what kind

of plan it is and how many people it serves.
