Enacts the "fair insurance treatment act of 2001"; requires health insurers and
health maintenance organizations to provide insurance coverage for the
treatment and diagnosis of mental nervous and emotional disorders, and ailments
of alcoholism, alcohol abuse, substance abuse, substance dependence and
chemical dependence which shall be comparable to the coverage provided for
other health care and medical services; eliminates certain limitations on
mental health and chemical dependence coverage so as to expand the basic level
of coverage to be required; makes it an unlawful discriminatory act to limit
health care insurance coverage for any specific disease or condition which is
inconsistent with other health care services which are covered.
