Medicare Needs MFTs! Rep. John Katko (R – NY) and Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA) just re-introduced H.R. 432 — a bill that would allow Marriage and Family Therapists to become providers under Medicare. In the last Congress which concluded in December, there were 126 bipartisan co-sponsors to the bill. We’re off to a good start! Read more here https://buff.ly/396hOV1. Look for an EBlast from CAMFT next week to join our campaign to encourage legislators to support this bill!
