Trustee Alert – Final Mental Health Parity Rules

The Mental Health Parity rules require group health plans that offer mental health and substance use disorder benefits to cover those benefits on terms that are no more restrictive than those applied to comparable medical and surgical benefits.

Recently issued final mental health parity rules will be effective for plan years beginning on or after July 1, 2014. The Trust should review its plan terms to ensure compliance with the final rules.
