The Director, Mental Health Parity and Network Adequacy leads the unit that oversees enforcing requirements for mental health parity and network adequacy issues of health insurance products. Maryland law requires the submission of reports to show that health insurance companies have adequate provider networks and reports to show the analysis that limitations for mental health services are comparable and no more stringent than limitations for somatic health services. The Director manages the unit that receives and reviews these reports.


On a day to day basis, the Director:

  •          Evaluates the quality of review performed by supervisees and holds supervisees responsible for accuracy and timeliness of reviews.
  •          Writes, reviews, and edits internal reports detailing the results of the analysis performed by unit staff on compliance reports and access plans.
  •          Discusses issues with insurance companies.


Additionally, the Director sometimes:

  •          Provides recommendations to the Associate Commissioner for Life and Health for corrective action and other issues when an analysis shows a possible violation of the law.
  •          Proposes and drafts administrative orders and consent agreements for deficiencies and legal violations of the filed compliance reports and access plans.
  •          Completes special projects as requested by the Associate Commissioner for Life and Health.


The Director provides leadership and policy input on issues impacting mental health parity and network adequacy as needed. This may require the Director to monitor state and national laws, regulations, and policy issues related to mental health parity and network adequacy, determine whether issues are relevant, applicable, or adaptable to Maryland’s markets, and make recommendations of policy changes.  The Director may implement policy by writing bulletins, regulations, legislation, and internal agency guidance memoranda related to mental health parity and network adequacy.


Education:  Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university.


Experience:  Six years of experience evaluating or developing health insurance regulatory policies and procedures, investigating or responding to complaints, and analyzing or designing contracts, services, or programs for compliance on behalf of a health plan sponsor, health insurer, managed care organization or insurance regulatory agency; and two years of this experience must include network adequacy and/or mental health parity responsibilities related to public or private health plans. One year of the required experience must have been in a lead or supervisory capacity. 


Note: A post-graduate degree in a related field may substitute for up to three (3) years of the required experience; and two years of this experience must include network adequacy and/or mental health parity responsibilities related to public or private health plans. One year of the required experience must have been in a lead or supervisory capacity.
