We previously announced that VPA has added a job posting page to its website for posting mental health care positions. For the present, so that we can build an audience and traffic to that page, we will offer postings free for any mental health organization. Take a look at the new page here, and let VPA know if you have a position to post.
As of January 1, 2022, psychologists and other licensed health care providers will be legally required to provide uninsured patients with a "good faith" estimate of costs for services that may be provided. The goal of the act is to prevent patients from receiving bills with any unspecified costs following provision of services. The estimate is to be provided upon scheduling of treatment, or request of an approximation of cost. Currently, APA is developing additional guidance and resources (expected around March 2022) regarding steps psychologists may take in their practice. Click the links below for more information:
APA recently published a set of decision aids to accompany each of its existing clinical practice guidelines (PTSD in Adults, Obesity and Overweight in Children and Adolescents, and Depression in Children/Adolescents, Adults, and Older Adults). The decision aids are intended to facilitate shared decision-making within evidence-based practice in psychology. It is hoped that the decision aids will serve as a concise and helpful resource for practitioners seeking to integrate APA’s CPGs into their broader evidence-based work.
The Vermont Psychological Association is a professional association for psychologists and other mental health care providers. We promote and advocate for the field of psychology as well as the professional interests of our members.
