Bailout provides more mental health coverage
New York Times, October 6, 2008
More than one-third of all Americans will soon receive better insurance coverage for mental health treatments because of a new law that requires equal coverage of mental and physical illnesses. The requirement is included in the economic bailout bill that President Bush signed last week. Advocates described the new law as a milestone in the quest for civil rights, an effort to end insurance discrimination and to reduce the stigma of mental illness.
