Date:9/19/2007

WASHINGTON, Sept. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- More Americans will have access to high-quality, evidence-based care for behavioral health conditions under bipartisan legislation passed by the U.S. Senate. The "Mental Health Parity Act of 2007" would require health plans that offer mental health benefits to provide parity with respect to all financial requirements and all treatment limitations.

"AHIP applauds the Senate for coming together in a bipartisan fashion and creating an effective process involving all stakeholders to advance this important legislation," said Karen Ignagni, President and CEO of America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP). "This bill provides coverage for persons with mental illness without undermining innovations in behavioral health services or imposing costs on employers that would make it difficult for them to continue to offer health care benefits."

AHIP commends the Senate for focusing on meeting the needs of patients who have behavioral health and substance abuse problems and allowing health plans to continue to use innovative medical management tools that improve the quality and accessibility of behavioral health benefits.
