Health Plan Complaint: Mental Health/Addiction Coverage

I write to ask for your help. My insurance plan denied my coverage for the following services recommended by my provider:

I am writing to submit a complaint and request investigation. I believe my health plan is governed by the Federal Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act.

I am in urgent need of these treatment services and they are covered by my benefit plan and should be paid for.

More Americans than ever before are suffering from mental health challenges. Suicide is on the rise. Access to adequate treatment is lacking and the barriers are many. Every day in the United States, 150 people die from a drug overdose – more than car accidents and gun violence. Families and communities are in desperate need of resources to combat this addiction epidemic.

Please contact me for more information about my case, or direct me to the next action step. I am eager to insure that these barriers to care are removed for my family and also for the millions of other families across our state and nation that are fighting this battle.
