The Licensure and Public Policy Committee of the Michigan Counseling Association is currently working to gain independent coverage of LPC's by Michigan's largest insurance company, Blue Cross Blue Shield. As part of these efforts, an on-line petition has been created that allows current BCBSM customers to sign indicating their wish for LPC's to be included as an independent mental health provider option on their insurance plan. To assist us in this effort, please consider signing the petition if you are a BCBSM customer and please share the link to the petition with any family, friends, or colleagues who are BCBSM customers and who may be helpful to our cause. Below is the link to the petition: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/michigan-blue-cross-blue-shield-mental-health/
This is a pivotal opportunity for us all to be engaged in local advocacy for our profession and our broader community of consumers who deserve comprehensive options in mental health care.
Thank you for your continuing participation with MCA!
