AATA Signs Letter to Protect Coverage of Mental Health Services

from AATA

On March 17th, 2017 AATA joined 41 other partner organizations of the Mental Health Liaison Group (MHLG) in signing a letter addressed to House Speaker Paul Ryan and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi urging Congress to protect the access to and coverage of mental health and substance use disorder care and services. The letter specifically expresses serious concerns about provisions of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) that would restructure the Medicaid program and end the Medicaid expansion as well as provisions that would significantly reduce the Federal premium assistance that enables enrollees to maintain continuous insurance coverage. These changes would specifically affect mental health care through the elimination of required coverage for prevention and treatment of mental illness and substance use disorders under state Medicaid managed care and alternative benefit programs. more
