Mental Health Parity: New and Changing Requirements



Join members of Faegre Drinker’s benefits and executive compensation group as we discuss the current state of mental health parity compliance obligations. We will address:

  • The new comparative analysis requirement for nonquantitative treatment limitations (NQTLs) that took effect in February 2021
  • U.S. Department of Labor’s mental health parity audit requests and recent enforcement activity
  • Trends in mental health parity litigation, including challenges to denials of coverage for residential treatment programs and autism treatments
