Parity Partner Toolkit
We must stop discriminatory practices against those seeking mental health and addiction treatment services! Use the resources on this page to help spread the word about two important parity tools:
Kennedy Forum Parity Tools
Parity Registry is a website where consumers can learn to file an appeal with their health plan, send a complaint directly to state enforcement officials after being wrongfully denied coverage for mental health or addiction treatment services, access step-by-step appeals guidance, find a comprehensive listing of state and federal regulators who can help with an appeal, and review FAQs and other information to help advance an appeal. The data shared will help provide the necessary insights to help shape public policy and influence future legislation.
