1992 DOI 10.1007/s11126-010-9154-y ORIGINAL PAPER Borderline Personality Disorder: Considerations for Inclusion in the Massachusetts Parity List of ‘‘Biologically-Based’’ Disorders Mary Ellen Foti • Jeffrey Geller • Laura S. Guy • John G. Gunderson • Brian A. Palmer • Lisa M. Smith Published online: 1 October 2010 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2010 Abstract: Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a common and severe mental illness that is infrequently included under state mental health parity statutes. This review considers BPD parity, using the Massachusetts mental health parity statute as a model. While BPD can co-occur with other disorders, studies of its heritability, diagnostic validity/reliability, and response to specific treatments indicate it is best considered an independent disorder, one that negatively impacts the patient’s treatment response to comorbid disorders, particularly mood disorders. Persons with BPD are high utilizers of treatment, especially emergency departments and inpatient hospitalizations—the most expensive forms of psychiatric treatment. While some patients remain chronically symptomatic, the majority improve.

This is causing some businesses to let people go, drop hours, and not fill empty positions. “The percentage of nonelderly individuals without health insurance coverage was 18.9 percent in 2009, up from 17.4 percent in 2008, and its highest level during the 1994–2009 period. These trends are due to job losses resulting from the recent recession and slow economic recovery, fewer workers being eligible for coverage, and more workers with coverage dropping it.” (Fronstin, 2010)This hurts people who are looking to find work. “According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, more than 78 percent of America’s 28 million businesses are “non-employer” firms, people who create their job and have nobody else on payroll. That’s a workforce of almost 22 million – larger than California and Michigan combined – and many are America’s entrepreneurs and job creators.” (Anderson, 2014) This also raises prices to the consumer to buy the products made in the companies.
