    Dear Association Executives – Following up on the discussion at today's Public Policy Committee meeting, we wanted to let you know that tomorrow (9/21), the House Ways & Means Committee will mark up legislation to allow "coverage of marriage and family therapist services and mental health counselor services under Part B of the Medicare program."

    This legislation has been a high priority of the National Council and we will continue to focus closely on this as it moves through the legislative process. For the specific legislative language, see https://waysandmeans.house.gov/sites/democrats.waysandmeans.house.gov/files/documents/WM-CPT-AINS_02_xml.pdf. Please let us know if you have any questions or if any additional information would be helpful.
