Public Policy: Insurance Coverage, Parity, & Medication

Approximately one in five adults experience a mental health concern each year. Access to insurance coverage ensures that Texans are able to receive the appropriate mental healthcare when needed. To improve access to mental health care and enhance insurance coverage to Texans living with mental illness, Texas should:

Enhance Medicaid and CHIP Coverage for Low-Income Adults and Families
Support Mental Health Programs and Community Partnerships
Improve Coverage of Short-Term Health Plans 
Promote Medication Access and Continuity by Limiting Non-Medical Switching 
Implement Policies that Provide Insurance Equity 
Integrate Mental Health and Primary Care
