ANA aplauds passing of crucial mental health billPublished 3/12/2008

The American Nurses Association (ANA) is pleased to announce the passage of the Paul Wellstone Mental Health & Addiction Equity Act (H.R. 1424). By a vote of 268 to 149 the House of Representatives passed the measure, which would end longstanding insurance discrimination and removes barriers to care for those facing mental illness.

"We at the American Nurses Association believe the enactment of mental health parity legislation is fundamental to the delivery of comprehensive healthcare," said President Rebecca M. Patton, MSN, RN, CNOR.

"ANA remains committed to ensuring access to quality health care that meets the needs of all Americans."

The Senate passed a version of the Mental Health Parity Act (S. 558) by unanimous consent in September.

Now, Senate and House leaders must work together to reconcile differences between the two versions and produce a bill that can pass in both chambers.
