Merry Christmas!


Thank You!


 Governor Cuomo has signed The Mental Health/Substance Use Disorder Parity Report Act (A.3694-C)  !

 


 

Call to Action:

Dear members and physicians at large,

 We urge you to call Governor Cuomo and Advocate for the enactment of legislation that allows the Annual Evaluation of Insurers’ Compliance with Mental Health & Substance Use Disorder Parity Laws.

 This will provide annual transparency and accountability measures from insurers, health plans and behavioral health benefit managers regarding compliance with federal and state MH/SUD parity laws.

 They will be required to submit data, and issue an annual report, for the purpose of allowing the Department of Financial Services to evaluate compliance with federal and state MH/SUD parity laws

 This legislation is actively supported by twenty-two statewide organizations and five national organizations representing mental health and substance use disorder providers, county medical societies, medical specialty societies and consumer representatives. 

 The Mental Health/Substance Use Disorder Parity Report Act (A.3694-C)

Governor Cuomo will decide on this by December 22.

Please Call (518) 474 – 8390  [press 2 to speak with a person]


Hi, my name is _______________. I am a New York State resident and I urge Governor Cuomo to sign A.3694-C into law. We need parity compliance reporting measures to sustain and enhance the care for with those with mental health and substance use disorders.  Passing this bill will help to overcome obstacles to treatment and prevent the deaths of our loved ones.
