To provide political and legal advocacy, education and consumer protection in the field of addiction treatment.
The Addiction Treatment Advocacy Coalition (ATAC) would like to thank all of the organizations who decided to join forces to let our elected officials in Sacramento and Washington DC know that there is a serious assault on California’s network of for profit addiction treatment facilities. Our concerns need to be addressed to ensure that the California addiction treatment industry can provide critical care to those suffering from substance use disorder.
In eight short days, over 20% of California for profit treatment facilities organized to collectively take our concerns to the Department of Insurance, the Attorney General, the leaders of the California Assembly and State Senate, as well as the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Task Force. ATAC will also be coordinating an effort to send letters to local elected representatives in conjunction with each of you.
In the near future ATAC will convene a meeting, which we hope all of you will attend, in the Long Beach area to discuss our strategy and divide into geographic committees that will compile additional information about our concerns with Health Net, insurance company reimbursement, claim denials, third party repricing databases, and parity violations. In addition, ATAC is planning a lobby day in Sacramento.
