The parity law regulations for employer-sponsored health plans and plans bought on the health insurance exchanges were published in two stages: as interim final rules and final rules. The final rules were published in November 2013, and all health plans that are subject to the law now must comply with the final rules. Get more information on the final rule.

A proposed Medicaid parity rule was published in April 2015. Get more information on the Medicaid proposed rule.
