Inside the guide you will find a background of parity
, an overview of the appeals process, a description of the parity appeals
process, other types of appeals you might file (utilization management appeals
, grievance appeals
, etc.), and further steps you can take beyond the appeals process. The Resource Guide also features model appeals letters for some of the common insurance claims denials that consumers of behavioral health services may experience.
If you are a consumer and are unsure of anything you see in the Resource Guide or if you should file an appeal, please show it to your provider or contact an advocacy organization in your state. You can find advocacy organizations in your state by going to the bottom of the Get Support section of this website.
