PARITY

The Insurance Department is creating a series of videos to help consumers and advocates understand what benefits they are entitled to for mental health and substance use disorder treatment. The first step in understanding your benefits is understanding what kind of insurance coverage you have. Each video explains access to mental health and substance use disorder services based on the most common forms of health insurance coverage, and where to turn if the services may not be achieving parity.
