Baker: Bill would expand mental health care services "I don’t think I’ve found anybody in Massachusetts who thinks we have enough people playing in the behavioral health space." Charlie Baker unveiled a bill Tuesday that he said would help expand access to primary care and mental health services and help control rising health care and prescription drug costs. He said the bill aims to increase investments in behavioral health care services, control factors that drive up health care costs and improve access to high quality coordinated care for people dealing with multiple health care challenges. One of the top remaining challenges is making sure that those in need of behavioral health care services are treated on par with those with physical health care needs. It would also enforce existing mental health parity laws, which are intended to ensure that insurance coverage for mental health care is equal to insurance coverage for other medical conditions.

Under the bill, certain health plans would have to offer coverage for two mental health wellness examinations per year performed by a licensed mental health provider and waive the requirement for prior authorization. Several representatives shared the challenges of caring for a family member who needed access to mental health services. “One of the biggest battles we need to fight over the next decade in terms of mental health is providers,” Petit said.
