The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, which was signed into law and became effective December 27, 2020, included an amendment to Section 2726(a) of the Public Health Service Act, Strengthening Parity in Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder benefits. The Final Rules for the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008, (MHPAEA), were issued in November 2013 and included provisions that require group health plans and health insurance issuers to perform and document comparative analyses of nonquantitative treatment limitations (NQTLs). Group plans and health insurance issuers are further required to make these analyses available to applicable state authorities upon request.
