NEW Opportunity!
 
Full assembly alert. "Senate Bill 22 ensures that the cost of treatment for mental illnesses, including eating disorders, be covered by health insurance. The Senate passed this legistlation unanimously on May 29th! The bill will now move for consideration by the Assembly. Your Assembly representatives need to hear from you!" Take action here.  

"A sign-on letter created by Senator Tammy Baldwin would provide vital access to care for individuals affected by eating disorders! This letter, addressed to Secretary Sebelius of the US Department of Health and Human Services, clarifies rules in the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA). The new wording would state that insurance companies cannot deny coverage for eating disorders and cannot limit coverage any more restrictively than they do for medical and surgical benefits.  This letter promotes a critical change in the way that insurance covers the treatment of eating disorders!  Your Senators need to hear from you!  Take action here."

Please check back periodically for new listings.
