What is Parity?

Parity is the Law: The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (the Federal Parity Law) requires that health plans cover mental health, eating disorder, and addiction care health benefits the same way they cover physical health benefits.

The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (Federal Parity Law) requires insurers to cover treatment for mental health and substance use disorders no more restrictively than treatment for illnesses of the body, such as diabetes and cancer. Visit our sister site, DontDenyMe.org, for helpful fact sheets and other materials, as well as brochures and posters just for providers who want to help educate patients about parity.
