May 28 , 2015 Mental Health Parity - Important Information About Your Health Coverage Webcast If you have health coverage through a private sector employer's plan, there are laws to protect these benefits for you and your family. You probably have heard of some of them, such as COBRA, HIPAA and the Affordable Care Act. Not as well-known are two laws that provide protections if your plan offers mental health and substance use disorder benefits. The Mental Health Parity Act and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act provide additional protections for employment-based group health plan coverage, including prohibiting plans from charging you more to receive mental health benefits than similar medical or surgical benefits. The webcast will provide you important information so that you can make timely and informed decisions about your health coverage. Join us to find out more and ask your questions. Make the most of your health coverage and health benefit protections - know your rights, know your options. Washington DC EBSA
