Attorney General's Office Behavioral Health Parity Agreements

Attorney General Maura Healey announced in February 2020 that her office reached groundbreaking agreements with five health insurance companies and two companies that manage behavioral health coverage for insurers that will provide more than one million Massachusetts residents with improved access to behavioral health services.

The five assurances of discontinuance involve Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and United Behavioral Health d/b/a Optum; Fallon Community Health Plan and Beacon Health Strategies; AllWays Health Partners; Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts; and Tufts Health Plan. The settlements are a result of AG Healey’s investigation into the companies’ compliance with behavioral health parity laws, as well as the accuracy of health insurers’ provider directories.
