Modern Healthcare

Lawmakers introducing a new mental health reform bill Tuesday said it would increase access to mental health services and help enforce insurance coverage parity. Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) and Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said the Mental Health Reform Act of 2015 is a companion bill to a revised House bill brought forth last month by Reps. Tim Murphy (R-Pa.) and Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas). Cassidy said he and Chris Murphy, both members of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, have received assurances from committee leadership that the bill would move forward.
