Take Action to Support Medicare Coverage for Counselors!
The Mental Health Access Improvement Act (S. 286/H.R. 945), which would make counselors eligible Medicare providers, has been introduced in the 116th Congress. NBCC needs your help to get this legislation passed!
Medicare coverage of mental health counselors has been a top legislative priority of NBCC's Government and Legislative Affairs Department for years. Providing Medicare recognition to mental health counselors will increase the public's access to addiction and mental health services, particularly in rural and underserved areas. This legislation would also be a major step toward gaining parity with other mental health professions.
We urge you to contact your senators and representatives immediately and request that they co-sponsor these bills. The more contacts with legislators that we can generate, the greater likelihood we can finally get this bill passed. Use the tools below to call, email, and contact your legislators on social media.
Please share any response you receive from your congressional offices with
We also urge you to personalize the messages by sharing any experience you may have of  turning away Medicare beneficiaries.
