 Bipartisan Mental Health Access Improvement Act Reintroduced in Congress

Bipartisan Mental Health Access Improvement Act Reintroduced in Congress:  Measure Would Allow Mental Health Counselors to Bill Medicare for Treating Seniors

On January 31st, the Mental Health Access Improvement Act (S. 286) was re-introduced by Senator Barrasso (R-WY) and Senator Stabenow (D-MI), that will allow mental health counselors to bill Medicare for treating older adults with mental health conditions. AMHCA was instrumental in accelerating the early introduction of S. 286 in the new Congressional session.  Please see a press release below about the announcement on the re-introduction of the Mental Health Access Improvement Act.  Rep. Thompson (CA-05) and Rep. Katko (NY-24) also announced they have reintroduced the bipartisan Mental Health Access Improvement Act in the House (no bill number has been assigned yet).
We encourage you to contact two Senators and your Congressional Member in the House of Representatives, to express your support for the Mental Health Access Improvement Act. Please mention Senate Bill 286 in your communications.

Between 3,000 and 4,000 bills are introduced each year of the Florida Legislative Session. Elections decide who will be voting on these bills. The FMHCA PAC helps elect the people who write the laws you and your practice must live with.  The PAC provides you with the opportunity to have a collective impact on the election of officials who will shape the landscape in which your practice will thrive.

In short, if you’re not at the table, you’re on the menu…
