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.
