On February 8, 2017, 24 members of the Coalition to Stop Opioid Overdose sent a letter to Congressional leadership asking that any reforms to health insurance markets preserve access to treatment services and recovery support programs for individuals struggling with addiction or mental illness. The letter emphasized the critical importance that insurance coverage and access to treatment plays in improving long-term health outcomes and detailed the cost savings potential of continued investment in addiction and mental health treatment services.
