Mental Health Parity – It’s the Law

“Parity Poster” Helps Patients Report Unfair Insurance Practices

Federal law is clear that insurers can no longer discriminate against patients with mental illness, including substance use. But how many people know what constitutes a violation under the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA)? Patients who know their rights are better equipped to protect their rights.

That’s why the American Psychiatric Association has created a new tool to help enforce the parity law and end discrimination: a poster titled, “Fair Insurance Coverage: It’s the Law.” Download the poster.
