Change mental health to have the same coverage as a dental cleaning, preventative care.
In looking over our insurance policies year after year it seems the one thing that doesn't change is our dental insurance. Preventative cleanings are always covered at 100% and no copays. Other covered services for routine things are covered at 90% after a $50 deductible. This affordable. Mental health is important. I wonder if someone that needed mental health care that may be in a long term facility has clean teeth or zero cavities? Maybe have mental health screenings covered 100% and therapy covered at 90% after just a $50 deductible. People have better teeth than their minds. In a data report by the CDC published in 2016, suicide is included in the top 15 leading causes of death. Sorry, I did not see tooth decay included in this list. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr65/nvsr65_04.pdf Petition government leaders for affordable, preventative and long term mental health care.
