On June 1, 2021
The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (or MHPAEA) now requires health plans to “show their work” and perform a comprehensive NQTL analysis of the health plan itself.

Jon and Nick are here to talk about what the heck NQTLs actually are, what the analysis entails, and how health plans can best protect themselves from the DOL’s wrath!
