CMHC Sign-On Letter:

Ask Commercial Insurers To Pay Their Fair Share of MCPAP

The CMHC Executive Committee has prepared a letter to commercial insurers in Massachusetts, asking them to pay their fair share of the cost of the Massachusetts Child Psychiatric Access Project (MCPAP).

MCPAP is a fully state-funded program that provides telephonic mental health consultations to pediatricians, regardless of their insurance status. Since 2004, 63% of children served by MCPAP are on private insurance.

In the current budget crisis, it is imperative that commercial insurance companies pay their fair share for the benefits they get from the program.

To add your organization to the list of singers, please contact Matt Noyes at mnoyes@hcfama.org or 617-275-2939.

The deadline to sign on to the letter is noon on Friday, November 20.
