Objet: Increase access to affordable, high-quality mental health services available for all ages.
Background and Issue Statement. Mental health, due to its complicated nature, can prove difficult to tackle in healthcare policies. For people suffering from mental illness, it is particularly difficult to get the treatment they need. A recent study by The National Institute on Mental Health shows that 25 million adults in America suffer from a severe mental disorder. However, only half get the treatment they need (NIMH 2017, 2017). It is nearly impossible to get the right diagnosis or effective treatment when there are so few options. The symptoms only worsen. This lack of accessible care has an especially large impact on certain populations including children and adolescents who may require different types of therapy that are not currently covered by most insurance plans or Medicaid programs (United States Chamber Of Commerce Foundation & Novo Nordisk Inc., 2018). A lot of people lack the ability to afford even one session with psychiatrists or therapists. To make sure everyone gets the right level of care, no matter their financial situation, we need to focus on expanding access and ensuring that all people have options regarding reimbursement.
Participants: To make the policy proposal regarding increased access to mental health services a success, it will require significant collaboration among stakeholders. They include legislators, federal agencies and private entities offering insurance coverage. There are also regulatory agencies such State Insurance Departments and advocacy groups representing patients/consumers/providers and employers working with plan sponsors. These stakeholders need to work together in order to improve benefits management and identify any budgetary problems that may arise from implementing new policies. Additionally each stakeholder group should strive towards developing cost-effective solutions that meet the needs of both providers delivering the service(s) offered by insurers under the new regulations while maintaining affordable coverage options introducing parity between physical conditions’ treatments costs vs those associated with behavioral health concerns .
Issue Clarity Statement: We must then increase availability by incentivizing clinicians working in areas where there is limited psychiatric/psychological support so they remain active within their field longer – ideally until retirement if possible . Implementing or redesigning fees schemes effectively might reduce the disparities in access to therapeutic solutions available under merged behavioral and medical healthcare plans. But, more attention needs to be paid towards minimizing any out-of-pocket costs incurred. . It is important that public policy promote integration – both provider wise through multidisciplinary teams coordinating efforts but also academically via social workers matching patient behavior psychological profiles along disease progressions – paying special attention too remote learning applications particularly useful rural regions Underprivileged population access shortcoming
Potential Methods for Addressing the Issue/Options for Change: First, legislation must require coverage equalization across all employers. Then, incentives should be used to attract personnel in fields such as psychiatry or clinical psychology. Finally, reformation fee payment systems will allow for unified quotes that vary depending on insured size and location. They also have accountability processes which are implemented annually. These plans aim at reducing costs while educating communities about how important it is to address mental illnesses.

Methodology for Evaluation – Policies that increase accessibility, transparency and efficiency can be evaluated. They should use indicators and track the progress. Other methods of evaluation include customer satisfaction surveys which are used regularly to analyze performance. Diagnostics accuracy is also possible. Parameterized methods will calculate customer loyalty. Rating systems with point scales rating customers’ loyalty can quickly identify root causes. Review points created allow members to monitor their results.
