Date: June 7, 2023
Time: 12:00 pm
Location: Online Webinar

Presented by The Kennedy Forum and Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA)

Despite enactment of the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act 15 years ago, individuals seeking treatment too often encounter coverage barriers. Renewed efforts at both the federal and state level to enforce existing laws and close coverage gaps are underway to realize parity and create a more equitable system. What rights and tools exist for behavioral health providers, patients and advocates facing claim denials? How can providers in Illinois and in other states leverage new regulations around medical necessity and network adequacy to improve access and reimbursement? Where can providers and patients turn for assistance?
