Earlier this year, we told you about the new law that was passed called the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act. This law evened the playing field guaranteeing that both addiction recovery treatment and mental health treatment will be covered under insurance in the same way that medical conditions are treated. We finally can say that insurance will cover treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. It is time that even more legislature is passed to help ensure that patients have coverage for the treatment plans recommended by doctors and medical professionals rather than only what is covered according to insurance company standards.
Many insurance companies have different interpretations of the need for treatment than the doctors and treatment professionals on the front lines of addiction treatment. That is why we support bills like Cusick’s law in Staten Island, New York, which tackles this specific topic and is aiming to bridge the gap between what treatment a health care professional recommends and what insurance will cover. Cusick’s law is paving the way for new laws that will help insurance companies and treatment centers work together to determine what type of treatment clients need instead of just what the insurance companies will allow.
