CMS Announces New Proposed Rule for Mental Health Parity for Medicaid & CHIP
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced a proposed rule to align Medicaid managed care plans and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) mental health and substance use benefits with the parity requirements of the private sector.
Vikki Wachino, Acting Director, Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services noted, “Improving quality and access to care impacts the health of our nation. Whether private insurance, Medicaid, or CHIP, all Americans deserve access to quality mental health services and substance use disorder services”.
The proposed rule is currently on display at https://www.federalregister.gov/public-inspection and will be published in the Federal Register on April 10, 2015. The deadline to submit comments is June 9, 2015.
