The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) has been law since 2008. MHPAEA provided that health plans could not limit mental health or substance use disorder benefits in any way that was more restrictive than how medical/surgical benefits were limited. This sounds simple enough…but why do so many people still have limited access to behavioral health care? The Conference on Behavioral Health Parity: What Is It and How Can We Make It Work? will explore this question, and give attendees the opportunity to hear from experts on how to work within the parity law, to better understand it and to benefit from it.

Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) will be aviailable for Social Work, LPCC, Psychology, CADC, LMFT and Nursing.
