New Parity Implementation Toolkit Available

NAMI and our coalition partners working on implementation of the 2008 Wellstone-Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act have developed a new toolkit to assist people living with mental illness and their families in making sure their group health plan is in compliance with the new law. The toolkit provides resources on how to file a complaint and report noncompliance to appropriate regulatory authorities.

You can access the toolkit online at the NAMI Policy and Alerts webpage, or as a PDF file here. For more information about mental health issues in southwestern Pennsylvania, visit the NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania website!
