NPR article on the Mental Health part of the proposed health care reform

All I’ll say is that I’m grateful that they passed parity, so that mental health is now actually on the bargaining table instead of being shunted to the side, as it usually has been.  Mental health parity will hopefully result in less co-pays, which will help with getting patients to come for services due to less expense.   I predict that managed care tightening of the number of sessions allowed will increase to keep costs down, which means the average number of approved sessions may go down.  Only time will tell.
