Health Insurers Face Little Enforcement Of Federal Mental Health Parity Law
National Public Radio

They are improving, but the U.S. does not appear to actively enforce the federal law. The federal mental health parity law was supposed to protect patients from discrimination by insurance companies. But in the seven years since it was passed, the U.S. government has not taken a single public enforcement action against an insurer or employer for violating the law.
