The New Hampshire Insurance Department found what it calls “a warning sign” during an investigation into whether insurance carriers in the state are following a federal law that requires insurers to cover mental health services as they would any other medical services.

Acting Insurance Commissioner Alex Feldvebel said a first-of-its-kind, 18-month review of insurance carriers offering plans on healthcare.gov in New Hampshire found that Anthem and Harvard Pilgrim are reimbursing providers for mental health services at lower rates than they do for other medical treatments.
