TAKE ACTION: Sign the Petition to Ensure Coverage for Addiction Treatment
Bill WIlliams2
“What became William’s fatal overdose occurred four days after his being denied in-patient detox as ‘not medically necessary.’ Would obtaining Parity Act intervention immediately upon his denial have resulted in a lifesaving admission? We’ll never know.”
Margot Head and Bill Williams tragically lost their son, Will, to an overdose in 2012. They, like millions of families, struggled to get insurance coverage for treatment. And those same families, at a time of crisis, are uncertain of their rights and coverage available to them under the 2008 Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act.
Families are being denied coverage, including medication for treatment and individualized care, which they are entitled to under the law. Families face roadblocks at every turn in navigating the treatment process. Help us change this broken system and save lives.
