The Parity Law
State and federal parity laws aim to create fairness in insurance coverage for mental health and addiction treatment by requiring coverage and management of MH/SUD treatment to be equal to physical health coverage. The federal and state laws provide different levels of protection and different rights. For plans that are covered by both laws, any stronger protections in Maryland Law supersede the Federal Law.
