Pennsylvania Offers Consumers Resources on Mental Health and SUD Parity Rights

Pennsylvania Insurance Commissioner Michael Humphreys announced the Pennsylvania Insurance Department (PID) has updated its resources available for consumers to learn about mental health and substance use disorder (SUD) coverage parity and their benefits and rights under the law. Commissioner Humphreys reiterated that PID’s enforcement of the protections found under parity law is a top priority for the Shapiro Administration. He also encouraged consumers to explore the resources PID has available and to file a complaint with the department if they believe they are not receiving the proper coverage. The updated resources include a new web page designed to help guide consumers to their coverage options, as well as new outreach materials that will help consumers spot red flags in their health plan’s coverage of mental health substance use disorder treatment. The new parity website can be accessed at
