The Affordable Care Act & Behavioral Health
There are many important benefits for you and your family in the Affordable Care Act, but one area that you may not be aware of is behavioral health. The new law contains important new programs that will help improve and expand coverage for those with behavioral health disorders. Unfortunately, many Americans do not have access to the mental health and substance use treatment services they need. Quality, affordable coverage can be hard to find and insurance companies can arbitrarily limit care for behavioral health disorders.
Join our live Web Chat this upcoming Wednesday, September 15, at 5:20 PM EDT at www.HealthCare.gov/live to discuss these issues and find out more about important benefits to those with behavioral health disorders under the Affordable Care Act and how it affects you, your family and others.
HHS Secretary Sebelius, Pam Hyde, Administrator for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration will discuss and answer YOUR questions.
Send your questions in advance to Healthcare@hhs.gov and we'll answer as many as possible during the Web Chat. We will also take questions live from twitter using handle @HealthCareGov
