Action Needed: Sign Parity Petition

Urgent action is needed. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida recently terminated mental health and addiction service providers and is seeking new contracts at substantially reduced rates through its affiliate New Directions Behavioral Health. This could affect patient access to care. NAMI is joining with coalition partners to push a strong message to other insurers throughout the country, to Congress, and to the Obama Administration that the termination of mental health and addiction service providers violated the Paul Wellstone and Pete Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 and should not be permitted in Florida or anywhere else in the country.

Whether or not you live in Florida, please sign this petition and send the link to everyone you know who wants to see parity in treatment for mental health and substance use patients at www.ipetitions.com/petition/mental-health-parity/

Strong participation on the part of NAMI members and other advocates is important to ensuring quality care for mental health and addiction recovery patients.
