Action Alert — Inclusion of Psychologists in definition of Physician in Medicare

Action Alert — Inclusion of Psychologists in definition of Physician in Medicare

Outside interests are seeking to prevent psychologists from operating independent of inappropriate physician supervision and have been pushing back against legislation to include psychologists in the Medicare physician definition (HR 831 and S 483). This is despite bipartisan support and the fact that psychologists are the only Medicare providers required to have doctoral training who are still excluded from the definition.

Your help is needed to turn expressions of support by our legislators into solid cosponsors. Please ask your legislators to cosponsor psychology’s Medicare “physician” definition inclusion bills and end inappropriate physician supervision requirements that hinder the delivery of psychological services.
