In a follow up to a podcast from February 2021, Gregory Moore, Dickinson Wright PLLC, speaks to Deepti Loharikar, Association for Behavioral Health and Wellness, Karen Fessel, Mental Health and Autism Insurance Project, and Alec Green and David Green, Sanford House, about behavioral health payment parity and other issues from the payer, provider, and parent advocate perspectives.
