DOL Settles Unprecedented Lawsuit Against United Healthcare for Alleged Violations of MHPAEA (PDF)
Epstein Becker Green, via Employee Benefit Plan Review Link to more items from this source
Oct. 26, 2021

"The enforcement actions reflect the first instance in which DOL has initiated litigation to enforce MHPAEA against a health insurance issuer, health plan, or administrative service provider in the 13 years since the initial passage of the statute.... [I]ssuers and health plans should carefully review both the consistency of the factors they use to determine which benefits should be subject to a given [non-quantitative treatment limitations (NQTL)] type as well as the ratio of mental health/substance use disorder benefits subject to an NQTL type compared to the application of the same NQTL to medical-surgical benefits in the same classification." [Walsh v. United Behavioral Health and UnitedHealthcare Ins. Co., No. 21-4519 (E.D.N.Y. settlement agreement filed Aug. 11, 2021); Walsh v. UnitedHealth Group Inc. and Oxford Health Ins. Inc., No. 21-4519 (E.D.N.Y. settlement agreement filed Aug. 11, 2021)]
