Last week the U.S. Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services and Treasury published the report titled Realizing Parity, Reducing Stigma, and Raising Awareness: Increasing Access to Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Coverage. The report includes information that shows health plans and payers are failing to provide adequate comparative analysis for mental health and substance use disorder (MHSUD) parity for the benefits they cover. Comparative analysis is a prerequisite for parity compliance.
