Mark Your Calendar! Show Your Support at Chicago Parity Hearing on August 6

Parity champions Patrick Kennedy and Jim Ramstad have organized field hearings across the country and will be in Illinois on August 6, 2012, from 5-7 p.m. at the Union League Club of Chicago, 65 West Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, IL 60604.

At the hearings, consumers, providers, representatives from the business and insurer communities and state and local representatives will testify on parity implementation and enforcement.

Modeled after the field hearings in 2007, which were successful in helping to enact the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) into law, the 2012 field hearings are intended to shine a light on problems patients are still facing as they try to access mental health and substance abuse treatment and areas where parity is increasing access to care.

Join Gateway Foundation CEO and President Michael Darcy who will be presenting at this important event. As a sponsor, Gateway Foundation encourages you to mark your calendar so you can show your support for parity.
