On behalf of Smart Practice Central, I started a petition to the White House to have professional counselors and marriage and family therapists included in Medicare reimbursement! Unfortunately, the petition was just a few names short of the 150,000 required within 30 days to get the White House to look into the matter.
As the Affordable Care Act brings in newly insured Americans, it’s overdue that this well trained portion of our profession be able to participate on Medicare panels. Congress should move forward with the bill proposed by Senator Wyden (D – OR). Since the petition didn’t make it through, please continue to advocate for the legislation below by talking with legislators locally and federally!
