Partner Michelle McCarthy spoke with Law360 for an article about how companies can comply with the federal Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act and similar state legislation.

"The law establishes these detailed, uniform standards for evaluating medical necessity," Michelle said. "I think you would want to put that in your plan document to ensure you're complying with that provision."
