National Council Applauds Rep. Tonko for Seeking Strict Enforcement of Mental Health Parity Law – July 1, 2010 Deadline Approaching
Date:6/28/2010

Washington, DC (Vocus) June 28, 2010 -- With the deadline fast approaching for new federal rules implementing the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA), Rep. Paul Tonko (D-NY) has sent a letter, also signed by many of his colleagues, to the Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and Treasury urging them to resist insurance industry efforts to create new loopholes in the law. The National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare (National Council) — representing community providers serving low-income people with mental illnesses — applauds the congressman’s leadership.

In his letter, Rep. Tonko states that insurers are engaging in “discriminatory and outdated thinking” and seeking to maintain outmoded medical management techniques. The new rules prohibit insurance companies from applying discriminatory limits against mental health services in private health insurance contracts. Before the Wellstone/Domenici law passed in October 2008, the managed care industry was free to levy higher co-pays and deductibles on mental health care, while also imposing arbitrary limits on outpatient and inpatient services.
