How’s it working?

Mental health parity.

It’s not just a good idea. It’s the law.

Parity requires most insurance companies to provide equal coverage for mental and physical care. That means insurers cannot impose more restrictions on mental health or substance use treatment than on other medical services.

How’s the law working? That’s what we’d like to know.

Please take a moment to complete this brief, confidential survey. Tell us if you, a family member, or a patient has ever been denied reimbursement or care.

By the way, if you have concerns about private insurance coverage, contact the Division of Insurance. For questions about Medicaid, contact the Department of Health Care Policy & Financing.

At Mental Health Colorado, we want to make sure that the promise of parity is more than paper-thin. We worked hard to pass this law, and we’ll work just as hard to enforce it.
