Dear TAMFT Members,
We want to urge you to contact your members of Congress to become co-sponsors for S604, which is the Senate bill to have licensed marriage and family therapists become approved mental health providers under Medicare. AAMFT has urged our members to contact their federal representatives who are Senators Corker and Alexander and the Congressman from your own district. You may do this by going to aamft.org and clicking on the tab for advocacy. It will take you to an advocacy page that helps you identify your representatives and gives a sample letter that you can send through the website or write your own. Linda Hazel, President-elect, and I visited their offices several weeks ago during the Spring Leadership Conference and asked them to support this bill. Your contacting them will build on this effort. Thank you for your efforts in advocating for our profession and giving greater service to seniors and their families.
Richard Gillespie, L.M.F.T. and M. Div..President, TAMFT
