New guidance on enforcement of the MHPAEA

On September 5, 2019, the federal departments implementing the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) — the Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor and Treasury (the Departments) —issued answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) regarding implementation of MHPAEA, the 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act) and the SUPPORT for Patient and Communities Act (Support Act).

These FAQs make final previously proposed FAQ guidance issued by the Departments in 2018.

The Departments also issued a disclosure template that may be used to request mental health and substance use disorder benefit information from a plan.
