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.

The Division of Insurance (Division) is issuing a Request for Information (RFI) on the costs and benefits associated with requiring health insurance coverage for an annual mental health wellness examination of up to sixty (60) minutes in length with a qualified mental health provider without consumer cost-sharing. The examination may include services such as a behavioral health screening; education and consultation on healthy lifestyle changes; referrals to ongoing treatment, mental health services and other supports; and discussion of potential options for medication. 

This coverage proposal derives from HB20-1086, concerning an annual mental health wellness examination. Please refer to the legislation for additional information.

Responses to this RFI should be provided to the Division no later than close of business on Wednesday, September 30, 2020. The Division will hold a virtual public meeting from 9:00 am to 11:00 am on Wednesday, October 21, 2020, to take additional comments from the public for consideration in evaluating the impacts of requiring carriers to provide coverage for a mental health wellness examination. Information on how to attend the virtual public meeting will be sent out in a later communication.

Based on the information received in response to this RFI, and the information gathered at the public meeting, the Division will prepare a report on the costs and benefits of a mental health wellness examination as described above.
