Federal Parity

Saturday, January 02, 2016

In October 2008 President George W Bush signed the federal Mental Health Addiction Treatment Parity Act into law. This major victory for recovery advocates requires insurers to cover addiction treatment in the same manner as they do other medical conditions ending years of discriminatory practice that prevented many in need from accessing sorely needed services.  We are proud to have been a driving force in New York having assembled a Parity group of more then 20 organizations who worked together with other local, state and federal stakeholders to help make parity a reality. This team approach reinforces what we can accomplish by working together with other groups and all levels of government.
