Free Webinar for IMHCA Members!
Looking Ahead at Health Care Reform
Friday, April 19th from 12:00 - 1:00 PM
We are always looking for new ways to benefit our membership and are excited to offer you the chance to attend a free webinar entitled "Looking Ahead at Health Care Reform" presented by James K. Finley, the Associate Executive Director and Director of Public Policy of the American Mental Health Counselors Association.
Learn about the changes continued within the Affordable Care Act (ACA aka Obamacare) that will alter LCPCs/LPCs ability to continue to work within their own private practices.
This webinar will address the environmental changes that will fundamentally alter the business approach to private practice. James K. Finley, AMHCA Director of Public Policy, will provide a lecture based on the latest information on how the Affordable Care Act will impact how LMHCs/LPCs can practice independently after its implementation. There will be an opportunity to ask questions.
You can find more information about the webinar below. Follow directions to sign up for the webinar which is set to take place on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 12:00 p.m. Mountain Time. Please note that the webinar is being offered to IMHCA members only. This webinar will not be recorded and we will not be offering any CEUs for participation.
