AGC Provides Input to Coronavirus Mental Health Working Group

October 22, 2020

In response to the pandemic, the president issued an executive order establishing a Coronavirus Mental Health Working Group to respond to the mental-health conditions induced or exacerbated by the pandemic, including issues related to suicide. The Partnership for Employer-Sponsored Coverage—of which AGC is a member—provided input to the Working Group. There, the coalition expressed support for expanding access to telehealth services to all employees, including variable workforces. In addition, the coalition noted support for addressing access to affordable mental and behavioral health care, thereby avoiding large out-of-network bills or even surprise medical bills to employees. AGC continues to advocate for avenues for its members to offer high-quality and affordable health care options to their employees.
