Mental Health Policy

SB 374 (Newman): "Health insurance: discriminatory practices: mental health" was signed by the governor on July 31. The bill requires large group, individual, and small group health insurance policies to provide all covered mental health and substance use disorder benefits in compliance with those provisions of federal law governing mental health parity.
