In this article it’s stated that parity will help prevent gun killing sprees. But these “new” rules aren’t going to apply to Medicaid and Medicare recipients and those individuals are often the sickest and most at-risk. So go figure.
Senator Richard Blumenthal, Democrat of Connecticut, said the five-year delay in issuing a final rule had real-world consequences. “In mental health, uncertainty kills,” he said. “If an individual poses a threat to himself or others, he cannot be told he will get the care he needs as soon as his insurance company decides what ‘parity’ means.”
Can parity be achieved in a capitalist society?
