From Ken Pope
Subject: recommended: parity poster for offices, etc.: 10 major requirements
I came across an excellent poster that I believe many of you might be interested in: "Fair Insurance Coverage: It's the Law."
The poster lets all patients, their families, and others know their rights to parity: It lists the 10 major requirements of the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act and explains what to do if health care coverage violates these legal requirements (including toll-free numbers for the federal government's Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, the insurance commissioners for the individual states, a benefit advisor at the U.S. Department of Labor, etc. to call to file formal complaints).
The American Psychiatric Association prepared the poster as part of an effort to "ensure that all insurers play by the rules.... Therapists should print a copy and post it their office or waiting room, and any other interested parties are likewise encouraged to display the poster in their workplace and/or share the link. Patients and members of the public are invited to download and review the poster as well."
The poster is online at:
Psychological Examiners Rules Change:
The Board of Psychological Examiners amended the administrative rules that relate to psychology licensure. In cooperation with the Licensure Board, the Vermont Psychological Association successfully made important contributions to the revision process. Thank you to all who helped VPA make a difference for our profession. Here is the link to the rules for psychology licensure (after you click the link, look on the right side of the page).
Please be sure to pay particular attention to Section 4 addressing "Supervision".
