Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Parity Reporting

The following updated instructions and template should be utilized for Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Parity Reporting as required under New York Insurance Law. The data reporting requirement applies to individual, group and blanket policies or contracts that provide comprehensive-type coverage and that are issued by insurers authorized to write accident and health insurance in New York State, corporations organized pursuant to Article 43 of the Insurance Law, and managed care organizations certified pursuant to Article 44 of the Public Health Law (insurers).  

Note: Prepaid Health Services Plans (PHSPs) are required to report data related to products offered in the commercial individual market for the specified reporting periods. The current data reporting requirement applies to calendar years 2017 and 2018. 

The completed reports will be submitted through the DFS Portal. If an insurer has not already provided the name and email address of the individual(s) who will be submitting the reports, please email this information to [email protected]  at this time.
