Melissa Pavlicek, President of Hawai`i Public Policy Advocates, LLC
Dianne Brookins, a partner at Alston Hunt Floyd & Ing
Beth Giesting, Healthcare Transformation Coordinator, Office of the Governor

The U.S. Supreme Court has upheld the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act. This session will cover how the federal law will change what services must be made available to individuals who have mental health and addiction disorders. Panelists will discuss what treatment benefits will be required for mental health and substance use services, prescription drugs, rehabilitative, habilitative, and prevention and wellness services. They will address expanded access to prevention services and include discussion about funding for outreach and education campaigns. They will also discuss the law's incentives to coordinate primary care, mental health, and addiction services.
