Mental Health Parity Passes as part of Bailout Bill

Filed under: Uncategorized — kurtglmft @ 5:32 pm

As I reported here early Friday morning, Mental Health Parity was attached to the bailout bill passed by the Senate last Wednesday.  It went to the House of Representatives on Friday, and was passed.  I recieved a confirmation of this yesterday from the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, which I would like to post, but my email server is currently down, so I can’t paste it into this post.  However, CNN has a story here that explains, as well as confirms passage.

All I can say is it’s about damn time, and to all those who worked tirelessly for this cause, I applaud and thank-you.  Sometimes we get all wrapped up in how “pork” should be left out of bills, but in this case, parity is something that should have happened a long time ago and everyone will benefit.
