Breakout #1 - Ensuring Parity During & After a Pandemic
Working together to establish parity in a post-COVID-19 world is more critical than ever before. This panel of providers, insurers, and advocates will seek to find answers to this dilemma by examining and discussing their roles in ensuring consumers have proper access to treatment and the insurance coverage they deserve while operating in the complex and ever-changing intersection of federal and state laws amid a global pandemic.
Thoughts from CEO, Jim Szyperski ...
"For me, in thinking about this, the single word that continues to jump out in all the news, headlines, and discussions over the last 4 months is - COMMUNITY. Whether dialogue on COVID-19, equality, racism, anti-racism, simple justice, COMMUNITY seems to be a common denominator. By definition, it encompasses whom we live with, and with whom we have common characteristics, interests, attitudes, or goals.
COMMUNITIES are our friends, neighborhoods, peeps, and tribes and are as diverse as their members. They are ground zero for our participation in society and in humanity. Maybe if we work together first and establish parity dealing with mental health issues at the community level, then we can be more successful in solving for the whole. It seems like a good place to start." - Jim Szyperski, Chief Executive Officer at nView Health
