CHAIR CON BUNDE announced SB 177 to be up for consideration.                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR FRED  DYSON, sponsor,  said the  administration requested                                                               
this  bill  allows  access to  third-party  payments.  Currently,                                                               
professional  care providers  who are  providing very  legitimate                                                               
care for patients can't use  the titles that federal law requires                                                               
for  them to  receive Medicaid  payments and  those professionals                                                               
supported  adding  the  word "psychoanalyst"  to  the  code.  The                                                               
department is  already doing  what the  federal law  requires and                                                               
this brings code into compliance with need and practice.                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR BUNDE asked if there was any opposition to the bill.                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR DYSON replied no.                                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
1:53:12 PM
