Here is an urgent Legislative Alert to get coverage for telemental health before the end of the year. CSWA is concerned that coverage of telemental health may not be continued after the end of the Public Health Emergency.
Please send this message to your legislators BY TOMORROW, December 1, 2022, when the final legislative packages will be put in place, at https://www.congress.gov/contact-us:
“I am a member of the Clinical Social Work Association and a constituent. Please include permanent coverage of mental health services provided by videoconferencing or "audio only" after the end of the Public Health Emergency. Many patients who depend on these services will be harmed if this coverage is removed.“
As always, let me know when you have sent your messages.
