AHIP submitted a statement for the official record of a July 24 hearing in the House Energy and Commerce Committee on “Advertising and Marketing Practices Within the Substance Use Treatment Industry.”
Our statement emphasizes that health insurance providers are strongly committed to meeting the needs of patients with substance use disorders (SUD) and helping them address addiction as a chronic condition. We also discuss the need for high quality treatment options for SUD patients and ensuring that this priority is not undermined by deceptive advertising and marketing practices in the substance use treatment industry.
