The final rule implementing the Affordable Care Act's Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) issued on November 8 creates for the first time the possibility of a safe haven from the insurance practices that began in the late 1980s. These practices intruded on the relationship between provider and patient, restricting treatment for people with mental illnesses and all but decimating treatment for substance use disorders.
The scope of MHPAEA services: a full continuum of care, including residential treatment, and enabling patients to pursue out-of-network treatment in another state if they are allowed to do so for medical-surgical care. For example, if a health plan allows patients from Virginia to go to the Mayo Clinic for medical care, it has to let them go to a behavioral health facility for substance abuse treatment.
"We are pleased that the Affordable Care Act will provide more flexibility for patients in choosing residential and out-of-network treatment in another state," said Jim Dredge, CEO for The Meadows. "It is a victory for all patients seeking treatment."

The Meadows Addiction Treatment Center is well established in Arizona, having provided inpatient treatment and workshops at its facility in Wickenburg for more than two decades. Now, The Meadows is pleased to announce its new Texas treatment facility, The Meadows Texas. Mental Health Weekly Digest announced on May 4:
"While The Meadows Addiction Treatment Center draws patients from all over the country and overseas, about 30 percent of patients are from the state of Texas. Therefore, it made sense to bring continuing-care services and workshops to the Lone Star State."
Bob Fulton, CEO of The Meadows, realized his vision of transforming a Montgomery residential home into a extended-care facility with a safe, supportive environment dedicated to embracing clients and their personal journeys in recovery. The Meadows Texas is now an eight-bed facility with two group rooms, where patients can receive "cutting-edge clinical care, as well as ancillary services including yoga, nutritional counseling, and recreational services."
The Meadows Texas is located on 55 pristine and secluded acres in the Sam Houston National Forest, Montgomery Township.
