Health plans are committed to ensuring Coloradans have affordable choices for coverage so members can get the care they need, when they need it. Coloradans should have access to comprehensive health care that effectively addresses physical, mental, and social well-being. That’s why health insurance providers diligently comply with the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA). MHPAEA requires health insurance providers that offer mental health and substance use disorder benefits to cover them on par with medical and surgical benefits. In Colorado, additional requirements were passed during the 2019 legislative.
