Action alert – Excellence in Mental Health Act

March 27, 2014

Network faithful please take a few moments to read this action alert from our friends at the National Council for Behavioral Health. Your quick action is needed today!

Congress this week is poised to vote on a Medicare payment bill that includes a demonstration program based on the Excellence in Mental Health Act. 

This 8-state, 2-year demonstration would provide enhanced Medicaid payments for organizations that meet criteria for high-quality, comprehensive treatment services. The result: an influx of desperately needed resources into our nation’s community behavioral healthcare system. 

You’ve been with us as we’ve fought year after year to enact the Excellence Act – now, this close to the finish line, we need your help again. 

Please contact your Representative today and urge him or her to vote YES for mental health and substance use treatment. Take action now
