2021 Access to Treatment Priority Legislation & Other Bills
Substance use and mental health disorders are diseases. As with all health issues, those afflicted deserve access to quality, affordable health services. We actively work to support legislation which improves access to treatment for substance use and mental health disorders, addressing barriers to care and ensuring adequate coverage within Medicaid and private insurance. We also aim to ensure integrated treatment between physical and behavioral health.
