Norcross Asks Secretary of Labor Acosta About Mental Health Parity Enforcement

May 1, 2019

Norcross speaks to U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta about mental health parity enforcement. In 2008, Congress began requiring mental health parity – which means, under law, insurance plans must provide the same level of coverage for mental health and substance-use disorders that they provide for physical health conditions. The problem is – the law cannot be adequately enforced for the millions of employees that receive health insurance through their employer. Currently, Department of Labor (DOL) is only able to require employers to reimburse their workers after there are parity violations in their self-funded insurance plans. However, DOL cannot take action against the insurance company that is offering the insurance plan. That leaves DOL with no front-end enforcement mechanism to ensure there’s compliance with existing mental health and substance-use parity requirements.

Mar 6, 2019

U.S. Congressman Donald Norcross – a former minimum-wage worker – urges his colleagues to join him in voting in favor of the Raise the Wage Act in the House Committee on Education and Labor. This will mark the first vote in more than a decade to raise the federal minimum wage. The Raise the Wage Act: • Gradually raises the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $15 an hour over the next six years to lift millions of workers out of poverty, stimulate local economies and restore the value of minimum wage, and • Indexes future increases in the federal minimum wage to median wage to ensure the value of minimum wage does not once again erode over time. The Raise the Wage Act of 2019 was introduced by Norcross, the Democratic leadership team and Senator Bernie Sanders with 181 House cosponsors.
