Strengthening IDENTITY | Preserving INTEGRITY | Advocating PARITY
As you know, the CSWA Government Relations Committee has been working for the past year on our Medicare Position Paper to implement Medicare reimbursement at parity with other mental health psychotherapy providers and to include LCSWs as independent providers in Medicare Part A.
CSWA has been working on these issues with members of Congress, other mental health organizations, and CMS to find a way to implement these goals.
We were glad to note this month that NASW is joining us in pursuing these goals. The more the social work community is united on legislative goals that benefit all LCSWs and our patients, the more successful we are likely to be.
