TENNESSEE PARITY PROJECT 
 
 
What is Mental Health Parity and Why is it Important?
Mental health parity means mental illness and substance use conditions must receive the same insurance coverage as physical illness. So if your plan offers unlimited doctor visits for a chronic condition like diabetes, then it must also offer unlimited visits for a mental health condition such as PTSD or anxiety.
Without Mental Health Parity, you are not getting the full range of benefits to which you are entitled.
What is the Tennessee Parity Project?
The Tennessee Parity Project is a coalition to promote state-wide public education on mental health parity. TPP engages in grassroots awareness and compliance education, as well as supporting legislative education and action on the issue.
