The MHPAEA requires mental health treatment to be dealt with in the exact same way as all other health treatment, but my doctor can't find any in network EMDR practitioners to refer me to in direct violation of this law. How is this possible?

I started seeking care for a traumatic event 1 year after it happened while I had Humana. In response, Humana blocked my access to an in network trauma therapist for three months, giving me access only after a daily phone calls lasting many hours, deleted communication center when I complained, then dropped my policy during the next open enrollment period. I had no problems with my new insurance, but then they dropped my policy the next enrollment period and I found myself with Humana again. Now my doctor can't find any in network EMDR practitioners  to refer me to, meaning I am blocked by Humana from accessing medically necessary treatment again. 

 

How does is this not a direct and knowing violation of the MHPAEA?
