HB 1332 Provides Hope for Eating Disorders. Contact Governor Rauner to Show Your Support

Individuals who suffer from eating disorders often run into difficulties securing coverage from their health insurers for treatment, especially for residential care. Last year, ERISA lawyer Mark DeBofsky of DeBofsky, Sherman & Casciari, PC contacted Illinois State Representative Laura Fine and Illinois State Senator Julie Morrison with an idea to amend the Illinois Insurance Code to provide health insurance coverage for eating disorders in line with the mental health parity law. That idea ultimately became HB 1332, introduced in the Illinois House of Representatives by Representative Fine and in the Illinois Senate by Senator Morrison. Both houses of the Illinois General Assembly recently passed HB 1332 and it awaits signature by Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner in order to become law.
