Soldiers Denied Mental Health Care

Mental Health Counselors have more in depth training than social workers yet they are lobbied out of Medicare. These thousands of well qualified counselors are denied reimbursement for mental health services and thus must refuse to see soldiers and other needy patients who are on Medicare. How stupid is that?

"Senate Bill Lacking LMHCs Medicare Coverage Sent to Conference with Pro-LMHC House Bill

Early Christmas Eve, the Senate passed H.R. 3590, its health care reform bill. H.R. 3590 lacks any provisions providing for LMHC Medicare eligibility. As the Senate bill is sent to the House for conference, AMHCA urges its membership to continue to push their legislators, in both the Senate and House, for inclusion of LMHC Medicare eligibility in the bodies' final health care reform product.

The American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA) is a growing community of almost 6,000 mental health counselors. Together, we make a critical impact on the lives of Americans. AMHCA succeeds in giving a voice to our profession nationwide and in helping to serve you and your colleagues in your state."
