This paper examines recent trends in the design and organization of coverage for mental health care using data from a Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation and Health Research and Educational Trust (KFF/HRET) national employer survey. Legislation and changes in the delivery of mental health services have altered how mental health insurance is bought and sold. However, our findings reveal that mental health coverage is still typically not offered at a level equivalent to coverage for other medical conditions. We attempt to synthesize these data with prior research as a foundation for informed debates.
