Massachusetts Senate backs broader mental health coverage
Patients with autism, eating disorders, substance abuse problems, or post-traumatic stress disorder would have greater access to treatments under proposed legislation that passed in the Massachusetts Senate. The measure differs from a broader "mental health parity" bill that has passed in the House, which would require insurance plans to cover all mental health disorders the same as physical conditions and would allow any treatments medically needed.
