Eating Disorders a New Front in Insurance Fight

Posted By: wbhazel1 on October 14, 2011 at 11:06 am

This article printed in The New York Times covers a relatively long term debate over what managed care companies should and should not cover in terms of mental health diagnoses.

Despite the relatively recent federal and many state mental health parity laws it appears that many insurers still have not yet gotten the message. In this article they argue the merits of residential treatment programs which they apparently view with a rather jaundiced eye. Is this a case of being penny wise and pound foolish whereas they will readily pay for hospital level care which we all know is infinitely more expensive or the comparable skilled nursing facility.

They additionally are willing to pay for outpatient level care which as we helping professionals realize is insufficient to meet the needs of many. I won’t get into the great debate of federal oversight over residential care facilities but I will readily state that it helps many thousands of patients on a consistent basis. The diagnoses this article portrays? Eating Disorders which affects all segments but especially young women, particularly those of adolescent age. Please enjoy the article.
