Recently, the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and the Treasury issued their 2022 Report to Congress on the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008. The report includes information that suggests health plans and health insurance issuers are failing to deliver parity for mental health and substance-use disorder benefits to those they cover. The report also highlights the departments' recent emphasis on greater MHPAEA enforcement in addition to guidance to correct those failures, and makes recommendations to strengthen MHPAEA's consumer protections and enhance the departments' enforce abilities.
