Substance Use Disorder Treatment

Mental Health Parity
Mental health parity laws were created to require health insurance plans to cover treatment for mental health conditions in the same way they cover other ailments. However, treatment of substance use disorder is currently exempt from mandatory coverage under Missouri’s mental health parity laws, leaving many insured Missourians unable to access affordable treatment. It’s critical that this exception be removed to allow people with substance use disorder to obtain treatment.

State Funding for Treatment of Substance Use Disorders
Evidence-based treatment works to address substance use disorders. Unfortunately for uninsured Missourians, public treatment, if available at all, has a long waiting list. Investing in evidence-based treatment helps Missourians find recovery, and strengthens our communities.
