The Parity Implementation Coalition was formed to help ensure that the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA)-- a federal law that protects a group health plan's mental health and/or substance use coverage benefits -- is properly enforced. If you are a patient or provider who has complaints, we would like to hear from you. Depending on the nature of your complaint, we may be able to provide help in resolving your problem or point you to other resources. Your reports will also help us identify potential patterns of critical concern to federal regulators.
