MassHealth Regulations Being Updated for LMHCs

MassHealth Regulations Being Updated for LMHCs: After several years of MaMHCA’s discussions with MassHealthadvocating for LMHCs,The MassHealth Regulations (130 CMR 429) are at last being updated.  The new regulations will conform with the regulations of other state departments (DPH and DMH) and correctly reflect the LMHC’s independent license, scope of practice, and the ability to supervise other behavioral health clinicians. We’d like to thank Secretary Marylou Sudder’s office for facilitating this long-needed correction.  

MaMHCA will let members know when the new regulations are issued and what this will mean for LMHCs.
