Medicare 601: The Enrollment Process for Counselors and MFTs

November 17, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

Learn about the Medicare enrollment process for Marriage Family Therapists (MFTs) and Mental Health Counselors (MHCs)

The National Board for Certified Counselors and the Medicare Mental Health Workforce Coalition are offering a free webinar, “Medicare 601: The Enrollment Process for Counselors and MFTs” on Nov. 17 from noon to 1:15 pm EST.

To implement Medicare Part B coverage for counselors and MFTs, the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) final rule, which contains specific instructions for practitioners to enroll in the Medicare program. The MPFS also contains information on how practitioners can calculate their reimbursement for individual services provided in 2024, including the required formula.

Join this webinar as the presenters explain the important features of the final rule, note changes from the proposed rule and their implications, and explain key enrollment provisions affecting practitioners. In the final part of the webinar, officials from CMS will answer your questions about Medicare enrollment.

One hour of continuing education credit is available for attendance of the live event.

After this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • learn how to enroll in the Medicare program and identify several resources CMS has in place to accommodate providers.
  • briefly describe the 2024 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule final rule, which is the main federal policy instrument that provides guidance to Medicare health care and mental health providers on enrollment and payment policies.
  • identify key differences between the proposed 2024 rule and the final rule, as well as implications for counselors, MFTs, and other stakeholders affected by the rule.
  • identify next steps in the implementation of Medicare Part B coverage of MFTs and counselors and platforms with further guidance to facilitate enrollment in the Medicare program.
