Psychiatric care and health insurance reform.
Concerns about cost, access, and quality of health care in the United States have led to a variety of legislative proposals that would reform our health care system and its financing.
Health insurance benefits for mental illness, including substance abuse, are treated differently from medical/surgical benefits, with stricter limits on outpatient visits and hospital days.
Medicare, Medicaid, and most private health insurance plans contain this historic disparity of coverage for mental illness compared to general medical illness.
