Mental Health Parity Act Spurs Early Action Among Employers
Date:6/29/2009

Some have begun full-parity plans ahead of deadline; new case studies available

CHICAGO, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- ComPsych reports the majority of its customers are revamping their benefits plans to comply with the Mental Health Parity Act, and that a significant amount already have gone "full parity," though the deadline for compliance is Jan. 1, 2010. ComPsych Corporation is the world's largest provider of employee assistance programs and worldwide leader in GuidanceResources (EAPs, behavioral health, wellness, work-life and crisis intervention services). The Mental Health Parity Act requires that annual or lifetime dollar limits as well as treatment limits on mental health benefits be no lower than medical and surgical benefits offered by an employer.

"Employers are worried - and rightly so - that complying with the Mental Health Parity Act will cause their behavioral health costs to increase," said Dr. Richard A. Chaifetz, chairman and CEO of ComPsych. "However, with a strategic approach of early intervention and increased use of the employee assistance program, our customers have been able to contain and even reduce behavioral health costs as employees are treated on the less-expensive end of the behavioral health care spectrum."
