Convalo Health reacts to changing US Health Care System
Convalo Health‘s business model is in many ways is built on the relatively recent reformation of US laws impacting the US Health Care System.
The phrase ‘Mental Health Parity’ which Convalo cites on its website has become more prevalent in the 21st century as mental illness and the treatment options for mental illnesses increase.
In short, mental parity and its implications on health services in the U.S., that US Congress is now forcing health insurance coverage for addiction treatment, has changed dramatically.
Below is an excerpt from Convalo Health’s website:
“The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA) requires group health plans and health insurance issuers to ensure that financial requirements (such as co-pays, deductibles) and treatment limitations (such as visit limits) applicable to mental health or substance use disorder (MH/SUD) benefits are no more restrictive than the predominant requirements or limitations applied to substantially all medical/surgical benefits.”
Convalo explains on its website that Obamacare was signed into law on March 23, 2010 by President Barack Obama.
“Under Obamacare, many Americans making under 400% of the federal poverty level (FPL) will qualify for cost assistance subsidies through the marketplace. Cost assistance comes in three forms: Premium tax credits for reduced premium costs, cost sharing subsidies for reduced out-of-pocket costs, and Medicaid and CHIP.”
The company is hopeful this access to more affordable healthcare, including mental healthcare will make their expansion plans occur more fluidly.
