ATTENTION!!!!! MEDICARE BILL MOVES TO THE FLOOR OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.

AAMFT and various other organizations have been working on allowing LMFT's to access funding from Medicare. HB 945 is the closest we have come. PLEASE, call your Representative and ask what their position is. If they are supportive, give thanks, if they are not, encourage them to do so. Remind them of the mental health crisis in America and what adding a few hundred thousand trained therapists across the country could do to help with that situation.  This vote will be happening soon. Currently, Bonamici and Blumenauer are the only cosponsors. Please call today!!
Here is a link if you'd like further information.

LOBBY DAY

Hello Everyone: We hope you are weathering all the storms well. We wanted to call your attention to our Lobby Day in March. This is where we connect with legislators and share with them about our perspectives on mental health, especially as how they pertain to bills that will be voted on. Currently, we are tracking over 20 bills, some of which will have a potentially significant impact on your practice, be it private or with an agency. Here is the information on the day. You can sign up by going to the ORCA website. They will be offering ethics CE's as well as the lobby day. This will all be done via zoom since the legislature is not meeting in person.
Thanks,
Steve Rodgers
Chair, OAMFT
