New Resource: Know Your Rights
Parity for Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Benefits
SAMHSA and the U.S. Department of Labor have produced a new resource to inform individuals about their rights under the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA). "Know Your Rights: Parity for Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Benefits" is an online and printable brochure that provides examples of common limits placed on mental health and substance use disorder benefits and services that are now subject to parity. The brochure also provides consumers with tips on finding information about their health plan benefits and coverage, and informs consumers on their right to appeal a claim if denied.
