Action Alert: Wisconsin Parity Act
The Wisconsin Assembly Committee on Health and Healthcare Reform will hold an Executive Session on the Wisconsin Mental Health and Substance Abuse Parity Act (SB-362/AB-512) at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 17 in Room 417 North (GAR Hall) of the state Capitol building.
Committee members will vote on passage of the legislation out of this committee and on to the full Assembly for its consideration. The Wisconsin Parity Act is an important bill that will require group health plans in Wisconsin to provide mental health and substance abuse disorder benefits at parity levels. This new law will increase treatment for hundreds of thousands of people in Wisconsin, saving lives and lowering costs. For more information on the legislation, visit www.ParityForWisconsin.org.
