AMHCA and MaMHCA have long sought bipartisan support for its Medicare provider status legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives, and on December 5, 2013, HR.3662 was introduced by our new sponsors Rep. Chris Gibson (R-NY) and Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA). The House bill contains language identical to that used in the Senate version, S.562 (Wyden/Barrasso), which amends Medicare to add the outpatient services of licensed mental health counselors ("LMHCs") and licensed marriage and family therapists ("LMFTs") under part B of the Medicare program

Now is the time to contact your House member to show their support HR. 3662 and request they cosponsor the bill.  Read more, download a sample email to send to your representative.
