Ask legislators on the House Business and Labor Committee to support HB 342 Mental Health Insurance Requirements!
In 2008 the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) was created at the federal level to ensure mental health and substance use disorders (behavioral health) were given insurance coverage equal to that of medical and surgical benefits (physical health). Although this protection exists at a federal level, it has been difficult to regulate at the state level. HB 342 Mental Health Insurance Requirements by Rep. Brian King (D-Salt Lake) provides some guidelines to help the department of insurance to better enforce federal mental health parity laws for insurance providers in the state.
