Announcement of Public Workshop, "Examining Health Care Competition" ("Health Care Workshop") Project No. P13-1207
In the United States, mental health has become a booming concern. Some have stated that depression is the common cold of America. Therefore, it is critical that the licensed professional counseling profession become equitable with other mental health professions, e.g., psychologists, social workers for treating this vast condition in the United States. Currently, a counseling professional does not have reimbursement rights for Medicare and license portability. These are critical items to address to meet the needs of the citizens.
