  • 1.  Milliman Parity Report

    Posted 11-20-2019 17:20

    Dear Association Executives,

    Yesterday, Milliman released a parity watchdog report with data and findings vital to our efforts to improve state parity.

    The report analyzes state-specific data through 2017, and the findings mirror your firsthand experiences: disparities are growing across the continuum of care – in both access and reimbursement – between mental health/SUD services and physical health services.

    The Kennedy Forum has put together the attached talking points, state press release, and state data fact sheet you can edit (example attached is an infographic from MHA Maryland).

    I encourage you all to use the report's state data and these tools to advocate for parity with your legislators and in the media.

    Please let me know if I can be of any assistance, and have a good evening!
