DOI Request for Information - Costs and Benefits of Requiring Health Insurance Coverage of Annual Mental Health Wellness Exam

Posted: September 2, 2020

The Division of Insurance (Division) is issuing a Request for Information (RFI) on the costs and benefits associated with requiring health insurance coverage for an annual mental health wellness examination of up to sixty (60) minutes in length with a qualified mental health provider without consumer cost-sharing. The examination may include services such as a behavioral health screening; education and consultation on healthy lifestyle changes; referrals to ongoing treatment, mental health services and other supports; and discussion of potential options for medication. 

This coverage proposal derives from HB20-1086, concerning an annual mental health wellness examination. Please refer to the legislation for additional information.

Responses to this RFI should be provided to the Division no later than close of business on Wednesday, September 30, 2020. The Division will hold a virtual public meeting from 9:00 am to 11:00 am on Wednesday, October 21, 2020, to take additional comments from the public for consideration in evaluating the impacts of requiring carriers to provide coverage for a mental health wellness examination. Information on how to attend the virtual public meeting will be sent out in a later communication.

Based on the information received in response to this RFI, and the information gathered at the public meeting, the Division will prepare a report on the costs and benefits of a mental health wellness examination as described above.
