The article reports on the blocking of health insurers to place more restrictive condition on mental health coverage due to the provisions signed by President Bush on the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act in the U.S. The author stated that the parity provisions do not mandate that plans provide coverage of mental health of substance abuse benefits. However, it requires plans offering mental health benefits to ensure that deductibles and co-payments are par with physical impairments.
