Mental Health Parity Still Not Fully Implemented

WBUR-FM Boston (4/4, Zimmerman) provides an overview of “the history of legislation to put mental health services on equal footing with all other medical care,” noting that “parity efforts began in earnest in the late 1990s, but still aren’t fully implemented today, despite widespread support, including from notable advocates like former Congressman Patrick Kennedy.” The article quotes extensively from a policy brief published April 3 in the journal Health Affairs.
