Providers say mental health plan inadequate – Hendersonvilel Times-News

The board that oversees mental health delivery in mountain counties heard from U.S. Rep. Heath Shuler on Tuesday about what the proposed health care overhaul would do to mental health services. The only mental health aspect of the HR 3200, the primary health care reform bill in the House, is parity, Shuler said. This requires insurance plans to offer the same coverage for mental health coverage as physical health coverage.
