MHARI + OHIC = Improved Insurance Coverage For Mental Health Treatment
In January, MHARI and several members of our RI Parity Initiative Stakeholders coalition met with Health Insurance Commissioner, Patrick Tigue, to share our priorities for 2021 and to learn about OHIC’s top priorities. Mr. Tigue was tapped to lead the Rhode Island Office of Health Insurance Commissioner (OHIC) after Dr. Marie Ganim retired in December. Dr. Ganim was a true champion for the mental health community and worked hard to ensure insurers’ compliance with federal and state parity laws. MHARI will continue to sit on OHIC’s Health Insurance Advisory Council, and we look forward to working with Commissioner Tigue.
