Letter from the Board

February 1, 2018

Hello Member,  

With your active engagement and valuable contributions, we were able to have a very strong start to 2018. We kicked off the programs calendar with the very popular workshop, “What EVERY Therapist Should Know About Insurance -- Even if You Want Nothing to Do with It” by Barbara Griswold. The workshop was a great success with 93 registrants.

We also had our annual membership meeting during which, the board shared details about the chapter’s operations and progress as well as the plans for the new year.  I want to thank all the attendees for their participation and feedback during the annual meeting, which will allow us to continue to provide you all with quality services.  Members can view our 2018 Membership Meeting Notes, 2017 Financial year in review and our 2018 Budget here.

In the annual membership’s meeting, members were introduced to the new board of 2018. Each committee chair shared with the membership some of the plans and new projects scheduled for 2018.  One of the new projects that was unveiled was the  First Annual Mental Health Job Fair, which will take place on March 24th, 2018.  

The job fair was designed to provide new and seasoned clinicians with an opportunity to access a wide range of reputable and local employers.  We are aiming to have a varied representation of agencies and organizations who work with different populations at various levels of care. Please help us make this event successful by attending and sharing the information about the job fair with colleagues and employers interested in being part of the job fair.

I want to thank you all for your ongoing support to the chapter and its different activities and I look forward to seeing all of you in the next workshop, “Anxiety Disorders/Hoarding,” which will be presented by Dr. Robin Zasio, scheduled on Friday, March 2, 2018. Dr. Zasio is a local clinician and national celebrity known for her clinical expertise in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.  Don't forget we also have the Free 3000 Club Workshop "Treating Veterans presented by Shing Long, Director of the Sacramento Chapter of The Solider’s Project." on February 2nd and another Free 3000 Club Workshop "Recovery and Attachment presented by Amy Rose with Recovery Happens" on March 2nd.

News from the BBS

LAW CHANGES EFFECTIVE 2018

The following bills become effective January 1, 2018, unless otherwise noted. Below is a brief summary of the changes that affect Board of Behavioral Sciences (Board) licensees and registrants. The full text of these bills can be found on the California Legislative Information webpage, https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/. 

Assembly Bill 191 (Wood), Chapter 184, Statutes of 2017—This bill amends Welfare and Institutions Code sections 5251, 5261, and 5270.20 to add licensed marriage and family therapists and licensed professional clinical counselors to the list of professionals who are authorized to sign a notice of certification for a patient under certain circumstances. 

AB 508 (Santiago), Chapter 195, Statutes of 2017—This bill repeals Business and Professions Code section 685. The repeal of this section removes a healing art board’s ability to issue a citation and fine or deny an application for a license or renewal of a license due to the licensee or applicant being in default on a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services education loan. 

AB 1188 (Nazarian) Chapter 557, Statutes of 2017— The bill affects Business and Professions Code sections 4984.75, 4996.65, 4999.121, and Health and Safety Code section 128454. It increases the Mental Health Practitioner Education Fund fee that licensed marriage and family therapists and licensed clinical social workers pay upon license renewal, from $10 to $20. It also requires licensed professional clinical counselors to pay a $20 fee into the fund upon renewal, and adds licensed professional clinical counselors and associate professional clinical counselors to the list of licensed mental health service providers who may apply for the loan repayment grant if they provide direct patient care in a publicly funded facility or a mental health professional shortage area. All provisions of this bill become effective on July 1, 2018. 

SB 374 (Newman) Chapter 162, Statutes of 2017—This bill adds section 10144.4 to the Insurance Code. It grants the Department of Insurance the authority to require large group health insurance policies and individual or small group health insurance policies provide all covered mental health and substance use disorder benefits in compliance with federal law. This is parallel to current authority already given to the Department of Managed Health Care for its regulation of large, individual or small group health care service plans. 

Senate Bill 800 (Senate Business, Professions, and Economic Development Committee) Chapter 573, Statutes of 2017—This legislation makes numerous minor, technical, or non-substantive changes to the law for various boards under the Department of Consumer Affairs. Changes that relate to the Board of Behavioral Sciences include, but are not limited to, the following: 

1. Title Change for Marriage and Family Therapist and Professional Clinical Counselor Registrants. The bill makes clean-up amendments in several code sections to change the term “intern” to “associate,” in compliance with the title change that becomes effective on January 1, 2018. 

2. Name Change Requirements. The bill makes an amendment to require a licensee or registrant to provide a copy of a government-issued photo ID when requesting a name change. 

Visit https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/ to review all changes to the Board statute made by SB 800.

 

Ethics Corner

For 2018, in each newsletter we will be featuring different CAMFT ethics codes and looking deeper at how to implement them into your clinical practice.

“CAMFT Code of Ethics - Section 1.12 ADVOCATE WITH THIRD PARTY PAYERS: When appropriate, marriage and family therapists advocate for mental health care they will believe will benefit from their patients. In appropriate circumstances, they challenge denials of care, or denials of payment of care, by managed care organizations, insurers, or other payers.”

During the SVC-CAMFT January 2018 workshop, Barbara Griswold presented on “What Every Therapist Needs to Know about Insurance”.  One of the benefits of learning about managed care health insurance is that you are better able to advocate and support your clients in navigating the insurance industry, which is part of our ethical code. 

Many times, our clients come to us while struggling with a mental health challenge.  Typically, this is not a time where the client is in a position to be self-advocating or (as in some cases) going to battle with an insurance company. The client may need more support to obtain an authorization, get a single case agreement with you as a provider, navigate how to submit a superbill, or facilitate obtaining resources for additional services that would benefit their mental health.  

For more information about managed care health insurance CAMFT has published several articles that can provide you more information. Here’s an article on how to support your client in appealing denials of claims. Or this article contains an overview of managed care health insurance information.


  January Presentation Summary

What EVERY Therapist Should Know About Insurance -- Even if You Want Nothing to Do With It (6CEs)

Presenter:
Barbara Griswold, LMFT 

Barbara Griswold, was a wizard of humor (she used a Wizard of Oz theme), while helping us understand the ins and the outs of insurance.  The thought of 6 hours of insurance talk, seemed boring to me, but somehow Barbara brought it to life.  I learned so much about forms, types of insurance, what different terms mean such as co-insurance vs co-payment.  From finding out we can ask for raises, to how to get on an insurance panel, I came away understanding so much more than I thought I would.

She also gave us important tips such as having a biller and checking on insurance benefits before you start seeing client, and what insurance companies would be looking for in your notes such as medical necessity and reducing clinical symptoms.  She has a lot more information on her website http://navigatingtheinsurancemaze.com/.

    Special Feature
    (If you would like your article published in our newsletter please email info@svccamft.org)

    Transitioning while Black

    by Heather Cassandra Blessing, LMFT

    28 Transpersons were murdered in 2017 - 25 of them were transpersons of color - most of those were black transwomen.

    26 Transpersons were murdered in 2016 - 22 of them were transpersons of color - most of those were black transwomen.

    Before I get further into this discussion, I want to say a few things.  One, I am a white, cisgendered, female from middle class.  Two, the title of my article, transitioning while black was taken from a conversation with a black, 17 year old transman client who used this phrase during sessions. And three, I only am speaking on my observations my clients have had as I am not qualified (since I am not black, nor transgender) to speak to what it is actually like to be black and transition.   

    In the 2017 Summer Streams Newsletter Feature Article, I had written about privilege and heard from several people they had not thought about how transitioning can be harder when dealing with race.  So let me start there:

    "The thoughts and lessons kept coming on day two of the conference.  I had one client similar, a black person assigned female at birth, now transitioning to a black male.  I had just had to have a conversation with my client before I left for the conference that the sassy attitude he had previously, would no longer work as a black man and could get him shot.  As a black woman, "she" was invisible and often ignored, as a black man he will be feared even if he hasn't been aggressive.  We discussed privilege going the other way, a person of color of the male persuasion is usually considered dangerous, of the female persuasion is often a target.  If a transgender woman of color looks at all as if she is transgender, she is even more likely to be murdered.  Most of the transgender people murdered in this country are transgender women of color. 

    When someone transitions, they often look at role models in their culture and gender to shape their ideas of who they want to be.  The most common way to find role models is in the media.  Media doesn't portray many positive role models in people of color.  We see the loud black woman, the aggressive black man, a black athlete, a single black mom in a low level job or very well off people of color.  Often white people are the heroes, for example the white teacher that goes into the inner city school and works with the poor black kids, with no hope of going to college before the white teacher inspires them to achieve great things.  

    I have had several clients complain of the lack of positive role models in the media that look like them.  Many of these clients struggle because those closest to them that they may have wanted to use as role models, don't accept their transition and therefore make it nearly impossible to consider them role models.  Many cultures are not as accepting of being transgender as the mainstream white culture.  Having to learn to navigate "being a man" when not growing up "being a boy growing into a man" is tough.  Learning how to hold yourself and to try to not look as intimidating as a black man, is hard for someone who was socialized and brought up as a black woman, in a world that sees black women as invisible.  Just as learning how to hold yourself and to try to look strong, is hard for someone who is socialized and brought up as a black man that had to look small and less intimidating so as to not "scare" people.

    For trans women learning how to do makeup, hair and other feminizing things, is tough.  Add to the fact that many of the products that people of color use are under lock and key at many places such as Walmart and Target.  They are often more expensive than those for the white population.  

    There seems to be a much more dramatic transition of privilege between between a black woman and a black man compared to the privilege between a white woman and a white man.  White men in general are considered just a regular person.  Women of all races are a bit wary of men in general because women as a gender have been victimized whether outwardly or or with microaggressions.  Black men though are feared by both genders.  With an open mind sit in a mall and people watch.  It is very obvious the space everyone gives a black man as he walks through the mall.  Black women though are nearly invisible.  Sit in a mall and watch how often black women are bumped into and even touched inappropriately.  If you are black and you are transitioning from one gender to another, there is not just the basic transition issues, there are also cultural norms and for black transmen actual safety issues that have to be addressed.

    I always have to really look through the lens of my clients and try to understand what I as a white, cisgendered women does not see.  With a majority (approximately 84% of therapists) being caucasian and only a small minority (2.3%) being black, most of us therapists need to constantly work on constantly expanding our multicultural outlook so we really can help our clients navigate the world we live in.
