The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act

Massachusetts Psych APRN’s will benefit from parity initiatives that seek to equalize access and reimbursement for treatment across Mental Health and Addiction treatment.  As our clients have an ever advancing  access to mental health and addiction services just as they do for primary care, there will be more opportunities to treat our mental health and addiction clients and achieve better outcomes if we can fully and completely treat them as the issues demand – not subject to arbitrary cut offs and ineffective treatment options.
