As you know, mental health parity has often been named as a top priority by Bay State elected officials and regulators — but, in practice, the results have been mixed, at best.
Senate Bill 1959 would provide a legal avenue to address denied mental health coverage with insurance companies. This bill is long overdue and sends an important message to insurance companies that they must recognize that mental health services are a vital and necessary treatment that must be covered.
Please contact your local legislators today on this important bill. Ask them to urge the Chairs of the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Committee to give SB1959 a favorable report.
