PASSED: Governor Cuomo signs parity reporting bill


PASSED! Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed the parity reporting bill as Chapter 455 of the laws of 2018. We thank the Governor for holding insurers, health plans, and behavioral health management companies accountable to the federal and state MH/SUD parity laws, and ensuring all New Yorkers will receive the mental health and substance use treatment and coverage they need.

Thank you and the entire NASW-NYS membership for taking the time to make your calls, emails, and tweets to the Governor and urging him to enact A.3694-C. Parity is a critical lynchpin in maintaining and enhancing access to care, and what an incredible gift to all New Yorkers this holiday season!
