Medicare Telephonic Sessions - 3-22-20

22 Mar 2020 2:00 PM | CSWA Administrator (Administrator)

A bill for Phase 3 Emergency Relief of COVID-19 is due to be passed TODAY.

Unfortunately, it does not include the needed coverage of telephonic sessions through Medicare. 

Please send the following message to your members of Congress: "I am a member of the Clinical Social Work Association and a constituent.  I have patients who are unable to meet with me for psychotherapy because of the COVID-19 crisis and do not have access to a smart phone or computer. The only way I can provide services to them is by telephone.  Please approve coverage of telephonic psychotherapy sessions, sorely needed in these fraught times."

You can find contact information at https://www.house.gov/representatives and  https://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm .

Thanks for your help and as always, let me know when you have sent messages.
