  • analyze the key provisions contained in the proposed 2024 Physician Fee Schedule and implications for counselors and MFTs. 
  • identify when, how, where, and who can enroll in the Medicare program, and additional resources CMS has in place to accommodate providers who wish to enroll.

  • identify opportunities for counselors and MFTs to participate and receive reimbursement in various settings (e.g., community mental health centers, community health clinics, rural health clinics, skilled nursing facilities, hospices). 
  • outline next steps in the implementation of Medicare Part B coverage of counselors and MFTs and guidance on platforms to facilitate enrollment in the Medicare program.
