Center for Public Advocacy

Your parity rights

Downloadable tools to help you understand and fight for your parity rights.

Comprehensive Toolkit

This toolkit is designed to be an aid for individuals seeking recovery from addiction, as well as their families, providers and advocates, to help them understand the new rights and benefits under the parity law.

We trust the toolkit can be a key resource to help you communicate with health plans and insurance companies, prepare and document information should disputes arise over coverage or reimbursement and understand your basic appeals rights and procedures.
