Ogletree Deakins Link to more items from this source
[Guidance Overview]
Feb. 5, 2010
6 pages. Excerpt: [T]he interim final regulations will require employers to consider -- or, in many cases, reconsider -- issues such as: Separate deductibles for mental health/substance abuse and standard medical/surgical benefits; Medical management standards, prescription drug formulary design and other 'nonquantitative' treatment limitations that plans set for mental health and substance abuse benefits; Operational differences between how mental health and substance abuse benefits are administered and how medical benefits are administered; How the general parity rule applies to a multi-tiered prescription drug program; Specialist copays that could apply to nearly all mental health or substance use claims, but only a fraction of medical claims.
