Final Regulations for Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act

Final regulations regarding the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) are effective July 1, 2014 upon renewal and apply to all commercial plans, administrative service contracts, and fully insured plans—including grandfathered and non-grandfathered plans.

We are making the appropriate adjustments to our health plans as required to comply with the final regulations for accounts renewing on or after July 1, 2014. The final regulations build on the interim final regulations, which have been in place since February 2010, and do not require major changes to our health plans at this time.
