NAMI Coverage4Care Survey
Why now? With dramatic changes now taking place in our nation’s health care system, it is important to understand the impact of health reform and the final mental health parity rule on access to mental health and substance use services. NAMI is conducting a brief online survey of personal experience with health coverage to explore access to care and out of pocket costs for mental health and substance use care compared to general medical care.
Who should take the survey? Individuals and family members of adults, adult dependents (18 – 26) or children who need mental health or substance use care. Respondents can have any type of health coverage: Medicaid, Medicare, private coverage inside and outside the health insurance marketplace, VA Health Benefits, TRICARE, etc. The survey takes 15 – 30 minutes and is available in English and Spanish.
Responses will be reported in the first quarter of 2015 and will be used to advocate for fair and equal treatment for all Americans who need mental health care.
Deadline: October 17, 2014 Midnight eastern time (11 pm CT, 10 pm MT, 9 pm PT)
