Mental Health Parity Signed Into Law

July 15, 2019

I am pleased to report Governor Lamont’s signing of the “Mental Health Parity Act” which will increase access to insurance coverage for mental health and substance abuse conditions.

One in four Americans have or will be affected by a mental health or substance use disorder. It should be just as easy to receive treatment for depression or addiction as it is for heart disease or diabetes.

I am looking forward to this law improving the quality of life for many Connecticut residents that need help, but would have been otherwise on their own without coverage.
