2017 Sunset Legislative Review

 

What is a Sunset Legislative Review? Why does it matter to psychologists that 2017 is a Sunset year? 

Every 12 years, the State of Texas reviews all the regulated professions. The purpose of this review is to determine the agency’s relevance to the public, and whether the state should continue to license these professions.

Submit Your Support to Expand Medicaid Reimbursements to Pre-doctoral Interns

The Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) has posted the Outpatient Mental Health Services Policy for public comment. This policy proposes changes to the Texas Medicaid Medical Policy, which would allow pre-doctoral psychology interns to perform psychological services when delegated by a Medicaid enrolled clinical psychologist.

This significantly benefits both current and future Texas psychologists.

TPA needs you to submit your comments of support. Follow the link below for more information.
