Federal Roadblocks to Access

Federal law restricts Americans’ access to high-quality addiction treatment.

No meaningful, national enforcement mechanism exists to penalize violations of the federal Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA), allowing group health plans and issuers to provide disparate benefits for addiction treatment and physical medical treatment.

Federal law severely limits access to addiction treatment for Medicaid and Medicare patients, and creates obstacles to addiction treatment for veterans, active duty service members, and federal employees. Furthermore, a lack of coverage for high-quality treatment under federal programs has led to no national standards for high-quality addiction treatment or coverage.

Federal law incentivizes investments in businesses located in high-unemployment, low-income and/or rural areas, but no such incentives exist for investment in residential addiction treatment facilities or outpatient programs where death rates from overdoses are high.

Plan A’s Federal Solutions

Our national spirit demands action because no one is immune to this ferocious disease.
Since federal law created these roadblocks, it can remove them.

Without federal action – and without your help, the addiction crisis in America will continue to kill our loved ones & destroy our communities.
