Advocacy Alert: July

“Getting included, getting paid!” is the battle cry for newly formed Office of Health Care Financing at APA.

Nothing has been more frustrating for psychologists than the precipitance drop in fees. Unfortunately for those of us in Ohio, it’s like a game of Whack a Mole; every time we smack down one problem, insurance companies pop up with another one. We are all exhausted and have been unable to raise fees.

OPA is working on statewide solutions such as new legislation to fight insurance pre-authorizations and take-backs. APA launched a strategic effort to ramp up it’s effectiveness on the national battle field.
