Obama Administration Issues Rules Requiring Parity In treatment of mental, substance use disorders (SUD/MH), implementing the 2008 Wellstone-Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008.  On a scale of 1-10 on how much more treatment this makes available; a 2 or  3 would be generous, because it simply  doesnt require SUD/MH coverage .  It addresses limits of covered benefits.  It doesn’t count if your not in a large group plan.  Insurance companies can still exclude SUD/MH treatment.  See  links… Going in the right direction; but falling short.
