Since the passage of the mental health parity law in 2008 and the Affordable Care Act in 2010, most people with health insurance now have mental health coverage. This is a significant improvement compared with the situation before the laws, in which many plans didn’t offer coverage and the importance of mental health care was minimized.However, mental health coverage is sometimes not as comprehensive as you might expect, and some health plans are still exempt from having to provide it. Treat mental health services just like any other medical service: Check your insurance coverage beforehand so you don’t overpay.
