Nurtur Launches Quarterly Webinar Series with Presentation on the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act

Employee Benefit and HR Managers Invited to Participate in Free Interactive Learning Seminar on Strategies to Reduce Risk

Farmington, Conn. (Vocus) March 18, 2010 -- Nurtur®, the health, wellness, and work-life company serving employers, plan sponsors and health plans, today announced that the company will host a free quarterly webinar series on timely issues related to population health management, wellness and work-life topics. The first presentation, "Mental Health Parity: Strategies to Reduce Risk,” will explore the challenges and opportunities presented by the recently enacted Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA).

The Nurtur webinar will be held Thursday, March 25, at 2:00pm ET. The event is offered as a free learning opportunity for managers and consultants responsible for employee benefits, human resources, employee assistance programs, or employee health plan administration.

The MHPAEA provides equal access benefits to individuals struggling with mental illness or substance abuse issues, but at the same time presents many challenges for employers and health plans to comply with the new requirements.

"Providing mandated coverage doesn’t have to mean higher healthcare costs,” said Mary-Ellen Sposato Rogers, Nurtur Vice President and Practice Leader of Nurtur Performance and host of the Nurtur webinar.

The Nurtur webinar will provide an overview of how the MHPAEA differs from the Mental Health Parity Act of 1996 and present strategies to mitigate financial risk while maximizing the mental health and productivity of employees.
