I was perusing the American Society for Addiction Medicine (ASAM) website and I found this link to help consumers understand their rights under the parity laws that went into effect July 1st.
Thought it might be useful...I think many providers have their heads in the sand about this and so do many insurance companies. It's up to US to flex our muscle and make sure we are getting the coverage through our insurance carriers.
I'm going to submit my claim to Blue Cross for the first time in three years. We'll see how it goes. I encourage everyone paying out of pocket who is carrying an insurance policy to check the T&C's and check out this link. http://www.mentalhealthparitywatch.org/ ... arity.aspx
For those in and around the Chicago area - feel free to contact me if you need help with your treatment.
