2022 Meeting & Blog Schedule
A few reminders:
1) We need hosts for 2022 meetings. If you sign your practice up to host you have the option to do in-person or virtual. Our monthly meetings are definitely the icing on the cake of our community! Check out the Google sheet below to see the available months.
2) Blogging Schedule for 2022. I want to thank members who contributed to the blog in 2021. It was the first year for us to incorporate blogging and our therapists knocked it out of the park! Let's keep the momentum going in 2022. For those who signed up to blog this year, please double check the schedule as a reminder of the month you signed up for. The blog entry is due by the 5th of the month. Christina and I reserve the right to not post any blog.
3) Are you interested in being a guest blogger in 2022?? Check out the spreadsheet BELOW and sign up wherever you see an opening!!
4) NO GROUP IN JAUNARY. Instead we will host an Instagram LIVE taking your comments and questions.
No Surprises Act-What You Need To Know
The "No Surprise Act" went into effect 1/1/2022.
The intent of the act was written and directed towards hospitals to ensure that patients did not have any surprise bills after receiving treatment. The bill ensures that hospitals or providers must let patients know if they are seeing a practitioner who is not in network with their insurance and what charges will be incurred from seeing the doctor, having a test done by someone not covered by their insurance.

This act affects all of us providing mental health services. Christina and I plan to host an Instagram Live this month to discuss this issue among more of your questions and comments regarding this and other topics that are important in our community.
