The departments of Health and Human Services, Labor and the Treasury have released three new resources to help Americans know their mental health coverage rights under federal law.

“It is vital for people to understand that insurance companies covering mental health and substance use conditions must do so as they would other medical conditions, and to understand the steps consumers can take to seek redress if the requirements of the law are not being met,” said Miriam Delphin-Rittmon, HHS assistant secretary for mental health and substance use.
