On January 15th, the CPA Board of Directors (BoD) met for their bimonthly meeting. Members of the BoD Strategic Planning committees shared updates about progress toward CPA's various initiatives, including improving branding, member engagement, and expanding communications to reach nonmembers, as well as making changes to governance to facilitate more efficient operations.
  
CPA's programming chair also shared updates about upcoming programming, including Happy Hours, CE events, and 1-hour webinars, with the goal of increasing opportunities for members to connect and earn CE credits for the upcoming license renewal year. The BoD also heard from a representative of our Disaster Response Network (DRN) about how members can get involved with this program given the significant need in the community (look for more information soon!). 
  
Finally, as they do in each meeting, the BoD received updates from CPA's lobbyist, Jeannie Vanderberg, about current and proposed legislation that impacts mental health services and providers in Colorado. Jeannie is on the pulse of the behind-the-scenes action and discussions of the Colorado legislature and is an invaluable resource to CPA and its members. The BoD also discussed possible positions on Colorado adopting the EPPP 2 and next steps for the RxP task force, as members expressed an overwhelming interest in CPA pursuing this opportunity. 
  
As always, BoD meetings are open to CPA members, and there are numerous opportunities to join committees and task forces. For more information, please visit www.coloradopsych.org

Key Medicare Changes for 2021

Posted: January 15, 2021

Proposed reductions to reimbursement have been decreased and the public health emergency has been extended. 

New federal legislation signed into law in late December 2020 directly impacts the 2021 Medicare conversion factor and reimbursement rates.  Although this action does not completely reverse the 2021 reimbursement reductions for many services, it does diminish the drastic Medicare payment reductions originally scheduled to begin this month.
