1. The Interdepartmental Serious Mental Illness Coordinating Committee (ISMICC) was created by the Cures Act to ensure better coordination across the entire Federal Government related to addressing the needs of individuals with serious mental illness or serious emotional disorders and their families. The Committee represents collaboration across multiple Departments and fourteen non-federal members representing treatment providers, researchers, patients, families, criminal justice systems, and others also participate in the ISMICC. The Cures Act created the National Mental Health and Substance Use Policy Laboratory (Policy Lab). The Policy Lab is working to promote evidence-based practices and service delivery models, and evaluating models that would benefit from further development and expansion. In particular, the Policy Lab is focusing on schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder, as well as other serious mental illnesses. It is also focusing on evidence-based practices and services for substance use disorders with an emphasis on opioids. The purpose of the TLOA (PDF | 210 KB) of 2010 is to institutionalize reforms within the federal government so that justice, safety, education, youth, and alcohol and substance abuse prevention and treatment issues relevant to Indian country remain the subject of consistent focus, not only in the current administration, but also in future administrations. The law requires a significant amount of interagency coordination and collaboration between the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Department of the Interior (DOI), and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

The following framework describes some of the key domains of mental health policy—levers that directly influence the delivery of mental health care. While not exhaustive, this framework outlines significant ways in which federal policy levers have been used to promote and enable changes in mental health care delivery in the face of the COVID-19 crisis. These policies are current as of early April 2020, and some details have yet to be finalized as the broader health care landscape continues to evolve.

1. In 1996 a federal parity amendment was signed into law as part of the VA-HUD appropriations bill. The law, otherwise known as the Mental Health Parity Act of 1996 (Public Law 104-204), prohibits group health plans that offer mental health benefits from imposing more restrictive annual or lifetime limits on spending for mental illness than are imposed on coverage of physical illnesses. This law expiredon September 30, 2001 due to a "sunset" provision, but was extended through December 31, 2002 when President Bush signed Public Law 107-116. The Mental Health Parity Act of 1996 offers limited parity for the treatment of mental health disorders. The statute does not require insurers to offer mental health benefits, but states that if mental health coverage is offered, the benefits must be equal to the annual or lifetime limits offered for physical health care. It also does not apply to substance use disorders, and businesses with fewer than 26 employees are exempt.. State Laws and Separ...
