The House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Health Subcommittee will hold a remote legislative hearing on Tuesday, June 30 to discuss legislation that would add LMFTs as recognized Medicare providers - H.R. 945, the Mental Health Access Improvement Act of 2019 – along with several other bills to improve mental health during crisis.
AAMFT appreciates the House Energy and Commerce Committee for scheduling this important hearing on improving mental health during crisis.
