New Tool Released: Compliance with Mental Health Parity Act

The American Society of Addiction Medicine, American Medical Association, and the American Psychiatric Association recently released a tool, the Enhanced Attestation Form, to assist in compliance with the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act for payers and regulators. The form contains a list of questions and answers that provide clarity on how to ensure compliance in providing information pursuant to the Act. The form is available to state departments of insurance for regulatory review, and “requires issuers to attest that they have performed analyses in each of the categories of compliance covered by the federal parity law”.
