Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation Advisory: Agencies Issue Extensive MHPAEA Guidance: Plan and Issuer Action Required

Our Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation Group summarizes the key provisions of a proposed rule that would impose new Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act requirements on group health plans and health insurance issuers.

  • The proposed rule focuses on three new requirements for nonquantitative treatment limitations (NQTLs)
  • The government intends to take a holistic approach to enforcement to ensure parity
  • If the rule is finalized, every NQTL comparative analysis will need to be updated and expanded

We will discuss the new Proposed Rules and mental health parity in depth at our Health & Welfare Benefits Monthly Update webinar on September 7 at 12:30 pm ET. Please click here to RSVP.
