Dear Colleagues:

The Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services (CMS) is proposing a reduction in payment to all providers – physicians and psychologists – by 10.6% in 2021. This will affect services for older adults and people with disabilities, particularly during a time when our nation is grappling with a global pandemic.

You can help prevent proposed Medicare cuts and advocate for telehealth and your scope of practice by submitting your comment on the 2021 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule.


The issues in the proposed rule will impact all providers, even if you are not a Medicare provider. Issues range from reimbursement and telehealth to scope of practice, and what happens in Medicare impacts all other payers – even the VA. So, it is critical for all psychologists to submit comments to CMS.

You have until October 5, 2020 to make your voice heard. 

It is critical for CMS to receive a very large number of psychologists’ comments. We need every single one of you to participate. It will only take a couple of minutes to comment. Please join with us in advocating for your patients and for the important services psychologists work hard to provide.


Last Day to Act: Call for Comments on Guidelines for Practice with TGNC Clients

Posted: September 16, 2020

The Board for the Advancement of Psychology in the Public Interest (BAPPI), the Committee on Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity (CSOGD) and the Society for the Psychology of Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity (Division 44) seek member and public comments on the Guidelines for Psychological Practice with Transgender and Gender Nonconforming (TGNC) People, for which a task force will be appointed to undertake a revising and updating project.

The current guidelines, adopted August 2015, expire in August 2022. The purpose of the current guidelines is to assist psychologists in the provision of culturally competent, developmentally appropriate, and trans-affirmative psychological practice with TGNC people. Trans-affirmative practice is the provision of care that is respectful, aware, and supportive of the identities and life experiences of TGNC people.

The deadline for submitting comments is midnight EST on Wednesday, September 30, 2020. The comment form provides a section for general comments, and for each segment of the document: Introduction, Guideline (#), Guideline (#) Rationale, and Guideline (#) Application. Reviewers may provide comments on each guideline within their respective sections.


 The Passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Posted: September 21, 2020


The Colorado Psychological Association is committed to social justice in all forms, regardless from what political, national, or community spectrum it emanates. In the wake of the George Floyd tragedy, the CPA Board of Directors is making a more determined and purposeful effort to more fully recognize work done to that end, understanding that only through equality for all people is personal and community psychological health fully realized. As such, CPA wishes to note the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her remarkable efforts fighting for the rights of women. As only the second female to be appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court and a lifelong, fierce legal proponent of equality for females, Justice Ginsburg illustrated in words, actions, and by the power of her example the importance of girls and women being freed from subjugation and provided their right to psychological and physical self-actualization and health. CPA applauds her life and work, and encourages others to be inspired by her lifelong efforts to promote equality.
