Do you support additional funding for follow-up care for individuals after a suicide attempt or overdose?
Do you support extreme risk protection orders?
- Yes: In cases where the individual is a clear risk to himself or others.
Do you support strengthening laws and transparency requirements compelling insurance companies to provide coverage for the treatment of mental health and substance use disorders that is equal to the coverage provided for a physical illness?
- Yes: If it can be done without increasing the copays, premiums or deductibles of the plans
Do you support strengthening requirements that insurance companies have enough mental health and substance use professionals to guarantee their members have a choice of provider?
- Yes: But I believe this is a shortage of professionals working with insurance in general more than an insurance issue.
Do you support requirements that hospitals and other providers report information on treatment availability to help individuals, hospitals and law enforcement locate available treatment for people in crisis?
Do you support providing state funds to expand capacity for mental health and substance use treatment in underserved areas of the state?
Do you support additional state investments in affordable housing with supportive services for people with mental health or substance use disorders?
