MHPAEA 103: The Employer’s Mental Health Parity Update for 2024

MHPAEA 103: The Employer’s Mental Health Parity Update for 2024

Description:

This discussion will review the requirements group medical benefit plans must meet to satisfy the provisions of the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA). The presentation will also describe the recent (July 2023) Proposed Rule and Technical Release issued by the Departments of Labor, Treasury and Health and Human Services.

The 2013 MHPAEA final rule provides that if a plan provides MH/SUD benefits in one of the MHPAEA benefit classifications, it must provide MH/SUD benefits in all MHPAEA benefit classifications. How this Proposed Rule would amend and expand this requirement to require that a plan provide “meaningful benefits” in each classification compared to M/S benefits will be explained.

A discussion of how the Proposed Rule reorganizes and expands on the 5 elements of a complete NQTL Analysis will include a demonstration of the requirements including: (1) the identification of NQTLs and the MH/SUD and Med/Surg benefits the NQTLs apply to; (2) the factors used to determine application of the NQTLs; (3) the evidentiary standards used to develop the factors; (4) an analysis of processes, strategies, evidentiary standards, and factors demonstrating comparability; and (5) specific findings and conclusions.
