Massachusetts Compliance with Mental Health Parity as applied to Medicaid and CHIP

Under the final Medicaid/CHIP parity rule (“the rule”), which applies most provisions of the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA) to Medicaid and CHIP, states are required to do a parity analysis and to document their findings, along with a compliance plan to address any necessary follow-up activities.  Below is a description of Massachusetts’ parity analysis process, findings and compliance plan for its Medicaid and CHIP programs, known collectively as MassHealth.
