Mental/Behavioral Health Care Parity Bill Passes
Well a least Congress got something done this week in HR 6983 Paul Wellstone and Pete Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008. It will be interesting to see how this trickles down into behavioral health care plans, co-payments, etc. Although I'm ambivalent about substance abuse and psychiatric conditions being lumped together.
