CPA Co-Sponsored CE Program Information and Application Online

Updated: May 12, 2020
Since 2017, CPA has been approved by the American Psychological Association (APA) to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. In addition to offering our own CE programs, we co-sponsor and approve CE credit for programs hosted by outside organizations. This process is now made even easier with our new online application and detailed information available here: https://www.coloradopsych.org/ce-approval.

By expanding beyond our own educational events to offer co-sponsorships of CE programs provided by other professional organizations, we hope to facilitate broader access for psychologists to high quality professional development programming. 

If you work for an organization or know of an organization interested in providing CE for their educational programs, please visit our website for details or pass this information along.

Integrated Advocacy Success: Psychologists Can Now Provide Phone-Only Services

Posted: May 6, 2020

 

On April 30, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced it was expanding Medicare coverage for audio-only phone services during the coronavirus pandemic, including psychotherapy, health behavior assessment and intervention services, and other behavioral health services. Previously, Medicare recipients who wanted to take advantage of psychotherapy through telehealth could do so only via videoconferencing. This expansion is critical for people without access or capability to use those technologies. Learn about how to bill and what specific services are covered. The change would not have been possible without a well-crafted advocacy effort that enlisted the support of lawmakers in Congress, the administration and at the state level.

Congratulations and thank you for the 10,000-plus messages psychologists sent to Capitol Hill and the administration urging the coverage of audio-only telehealth services in Medicare. Your efforts helped convince the administration to adopt this essential telehealth expansion.
