Dr Cochran fully endorses Patrick Kennedy and the Kennedy Forum, passionate advocates for Mental health parity: Making Mental Health Essential Health

The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA or Parity Act) requires health insurance carriers to achieve coverage parity between Mental Health/Substance Use Disorders (MH/SUD) and medical/surgical benefits, especially in regard to financial requirements and treatment limitations.
