Important Information for you about the Mental Health Parity Law
We all know the importance of insurance coverage for patients trying to access treatment for eating disorders. We wanted to let you know that it's now the law for private insurance plans to provide equal coverage for mental and physical health services through The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act!
For those suffering from a mental health disorder, such as an eating disorder, this means you must be given the same treatment coverage as those suffering from medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and/or cancer. To read more about this law, you will find a flyer below from the American Psychiatric Association or click here to download it.
To speak with a Renfrew representative about this or to schedule an assessment, please call 1-800-RENFREW.
A special thank you to our alumni and those who have advocated for years to get this important legislation passed!
