The Coalition to Stop Opioid Overdose led a letter signed by 432 health organizations representing consumers, families, providers, health care and social service professionals, advocates and allied organizations who are committed to meaningful and comprehensive policies to reduce the toll of substance use disorders and mental illness through prevention, treatment and recovery support services.

The letter shared concerns with the most recent version of the American Health Care Act (AHCA). The letter highlighted the importance of parity for mental health and addiction treatment services, and emphasized that Medicaid expansion and essential health benefits are critical in promoting access to mental health and addiction treatment.
