Medicaid and CHIP Parity Final Rule

SAMHSA and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) invite you to join a presentation of the final rule on mental health and substance use disorder parity for Medicaid and CHIP, to be held on Thursday, April 14, 1:00 – 2:00 pm.

This rule implements the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA) for 23 million beneficiaries enrolled in Medicaid managed care organizations (MCOs), Medicaid alternative benefit plans (ABPs), and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), ensuring that benefits for mental health and substance use disorder treatments and services are offered on equal footing with medical and surgical benefits. This presentation will include a discussion of the application of parity to Medicaid and CHIP programs, key changes from the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, and answers to frequently asked questions.
