Letter to the Editor: Focus on Mental Health Coverage
Reader wants insurance companies to offer better coverage of mental health issues to help curb violence.
To the Editor:
Less emphasis on gun lobby, NRA and the like. We need to place increased pressure on insurance companies to cover mental health screenings, treatment and reduce ridiculous limitations on amounts that will be paid. In short, since most news outlets focus on violence, we cannot underestimate its effects on the public and, accordingly, the psychological impact on the populace. Most carriers limit yearly recompense for psychiatric and psychological care. The limitations are entirely unreasonable and the coverage wholly inadequate.
