Mental health and substance use disorders among the workforce take a large toll on employees and employers. To address this, many plans offer mental health and substance use disorder benefits along with their traditional medical and surgical benefits. Plan sponsors need to make sure these benefits comply with federal parity rules. This session focuses on complying with federal mental health parity rules such as the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA). The presentation addresses final guidance issued by the DOL in September 2019 as well as federal enforcement of MHPAEA.

This webcast covers:

  • The need for mental health and substance use disorder benefits
  • Mental health parity rules, including new DOL parity FAQs
  • Federal Enforcement of MHPAEA.
