APA Statement on Senate Passage of Health Care Reform Legislation
Date:12/24/2009

WASHINGTON, Dec. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Psychological Association commends the U.S. Senate for its historic passage of legislation that holds the promise of more comprehensive coverage for Americans with health insurance and provides new options for those without.

  • integration of psychological services with primary care
  • supports the training of psychologists
  • increased comparative effectiveness research, which compares treatments and strategies to help health care professionals and patients decide on the best treatment.
  • initiatives to eliminate health disparities
  • the promotion of prevention and wellness, and
  • an extension of vital Medicare reimbursement for psychotherapy
