As NAATP continues to advocate for Parity Enforcement and Network Adequacy for addiction treatment services, we are supporting a survey on network adequacy produced with NORC at the University of Chicago, Mental Health Treatment and Research Institute (MHTRI) and the Bowman Family Foundation.
This survey is aimed primarily at individuals who have been denied coverage or been unable to find care. We are asking our members and the public to share the survey with family, patients and alumni who may have been impacted by parity or network adequacy which has led them to have a hard time accessing mental health or addiction treatment services.
The survey has been successful when shared in alumni social media groups, distributed directly to alumni, or posted on organization social platforms. The survey is available in English or Spanish and will take about 5-15 minutes. You can respond for yourself or on behalf of someone you know, such as a family member, friend, or a patient.
Sample language you might consider is:
Have you or someone you know had a hard time getting mental health or addiction care? Or had difficulty finding a provider who doesn’t have a long waitlist?
If so, please take this important survey from NORC at the University of Chicago. Your confidential responses could help drive policy change that will make a difference for everyone.
