CMS Webinar Explaining Medicaid Parity Proposed Rule
Friday, April 24, 2015 | 2:00 PM -- 3:00 PM EST

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) invite you to join us for a webinar titled “Overview of NPRM (CMS-2333-P) Application of MHPAEA to Medicaid and CHIP.”

Recently, CMS announced a proposed rule to align mental health and substance use disorder benefits for low-income Americans with benefits required of private health plans and insurance. The proposal applies certain provisions of the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) of 2008 to Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). The Act ensures that mental health and substance use disorder benefits are no more restrictive than medical and surgical services.

The goal of the webinar is to inform consumers and providers about the details of the proposed rule and how to submit comments. The proposed rule is currently published at the Federal Register. The deadline to submit comments is June 9, 2015.

Go to SAMHSA Health Financing for more information on MHPAEA.

Speakers:

  • John O'Brien, Senior Policy Advisor for the Disabled and Elderly Health Programs Group, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
  • Christopher Carroll, National Policy Liaison Branch Chief, Office of Policy Planning and Innovation, SAMHSA
  • David Shillcutt, Health Insurance Specialist, Division of Benefits and Coverage at the Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services
