Enforce mental health parity to the full extent of the law

The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008, which Hillary proudly co-sponsored, requires group health plans to provide the same level of benefits for mental health as other medical conditions. Despite the law, too many Americans seeking mental health treatment still get turned away. Hillary will strengthen federal monitoring to make sure insurers are complying with the mental health parity law—and she’ll make it easier for patients to file a complaint when their rights are violated.
