FAQs About Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Parity Implementation and the 21st Century Cures Act Part 38

Today, the Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and the Treasury are publishing FAQs that solicit comments on how to improve disclosure under the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act and other laws, as required by the 21st Century Cures Act. As part of the solicitation of comments, the departments are also releasing and seeking comments on a draft model form that participants, enrollees, or their authorized representatives could use to request information from their health plan about nonquantitative treatment limitations that affect their mental health or substance use disorder benefits.
