§ 27-38.2-1 Mental illness coverage.
Every health care insurer that delivers or issues for delivery or renews in
this state a contract, plan, or policy except contracts providing supplemental
coverage to Medicare or other governmental programs, shall provide coverage for
the medical treatment of mental illness and substance abuse under the same
terms and conditions as that coverage is provided for other illnesses and
diseases. Insurance coverage offered pursuant to this statute must include the
same durational limits, amount limits, deductibles, and co-insurance factors
for mental illness as for other illnesses and diseases.
