Three health center sponsored bills are heading to the Governor’s desk and we need your help. The Governor needs to hear that health centers across California support these bills and are asking him to sign them into law.
This is especially important for AB 1863, which will allow Marriage and Family Therapists to become billable providers in Medi-Cal. If we don’t share compelling stories from our health centers, the bill may be vetoed.
Click these links to download template letters for AB 1863 (Wood), AB 2048 (Gray) and AB 2053 (Gonzalez) and use them to share your voice with the Governor. For AB 1863, tell the Governor about your behavioral health vacancies and what you could do to help the community if MFTs were billable providers at your health center.
Email a copy of each letter to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to (916) 440-8172 so we can bundle them and send them to the Governor. Deadline for submission to us is COB August 30, 2016.
We need your letters, and we need a lot of them. Please take action today!
