Call-In for Parity on Friday, December 7th

December 5, 2007

Time is now running short for Congress to take final action on mental illness insurance parity legislation before the end of the year.  Only a few legislative days remain before the end of the year and lawmakers need to hear about the critical need to pass parity legislation before adjournment. 

On Friday, December 7th, a toll-free Parity Hotline will be operating to get the message to all House and Senate offices.  Do NOT adjourn without passing mental illness parity.  Call 1-866-parity4 (1-866-727-4894) and demand passage of parity this year.  (Note – this Parity Hotline reaches the U.S. Capitol switchboard, which can connect callers to their members' offices.)

Leave a message urging active support for legislation to ensure equitable coverage in health plans for mental illness treatment – S 558 and HR 1424.  Make clear to your Senators and House member – "I am calling to urge you not to let another year go by without passing mental illness parity legislation.  Please contact House and Senate leaders and demand passage of S 558/HR 1424 before the end of the year."
