“Dunk City” run to the Sweet 16!

Eagle Basketball Fans,

What an exciting time as all of FGCU basks in the unbelievable glow generated by Andy & the guys!   In turn, in addition to the tremendous transformational scenario that has been created for the University, is a potentially small window for FGCU Athletics to take advantage of the well-earned excitement about our Men’s Basketball program, which has followed many successes by all of our terrific teams. 

Essentially, many don’t realize how short we are in funding relative to even a number of our fellow A-Sun opponents (i.e., only four of our 15 teams have the NCAA maximum limit for scholarships, small recruiting and travel budgets and NONE of our teams are fully staffed).  Therefore, in a concentrated effort to best enable us to maintain our talented coaches and to continue to attract future Sherwood Browns, Sarah Hansens, and Chris Sales, we are reaching out to all for much needed additional support by making a donation in honor of the Men’s Basketball historical “Dunk City” run to the Sweet 16! 

Improving Access to Children's Mental Health Care: Lessons from a Study of Eleven States (March 2013)

Improving Access to Children's Mental Health Care: Lessons from a Study of Eleven States (March 2013)

A challenge to expanding children's mental health care through the Affordable Care Act is the underdeveloped state of these services across the U.S. An 11-state study conducted by the Center for Health and Health Care in Schools identifies both common barriers to and encouraging examples of success. 

As always, our paper has benefited from the review and comment of a number of colleagues and to them goes our profound thanks. We particularly appreciated the comments of friend and colleague, Scott Bloom, LCSW (Director of School Mental Health Services at the New York City Departments of Health & Mental Hygiene and Department of Education) who has shared his insights with us over the years.

Florida College System Economic Impact Report 2013

The Florida College System generates a vast array of benefits for its students, communities, and the state of Florida. A March 2013 report from Economic Modeling Specialists, Inc. (EMSI) details the significant role the system plays in the local and regional economy. The report was commissioned by the Florida College System Foundation and the system's Council of Presidents.

In addition to examining the impact of college and student spending, EMSI also looked at impacts created by the accumulated skills and higher productivity of students in the workforce. Here are a few highlights from the 2013 Economic Contribution of the Florida College System report:

The total effect of the Florida College System on the Florida economy based on student productivity gains, college operations, and student spending is $26.6 billion.

The state government sees a rate of return of 9.4% on its investment in the Florida College System.

For every dollar of support, taxpayers see a cumulative return of $2.90 over the course of students' careers.

Students enjoy an attractive 16.8% average rate of return on their educational investment, recovering all costs (including tuition, fees, and forgone wages) in 9.1 years. Compare that to the historical average rate of return for the stock market of 9.9% and recent 2- year certificates of deposit (CD) of between .25% and 1.20%.
Florida also benefits from improved health and reduced welfare, unemployment, and crime that accompany a more educated population.

93 percent of Florida College System students remain in Florida and contribute to the state's economic growth.

The economic impact full report provides a look at the investment from the student, social, and taxpayer perspectives. It also provides an economic growth analysis that includes the effect of college operations, student spending, productivity and transfer. The report materials are available below.

Contact your legislators: New Legislation to Cover Mental Health Counseling Under Medicare

from American Mental Health Counselors Association

New Legislation to Cover Mental Health Counseling Under Medicare
Co-Sponsors Needed—Contact Your Senators 

On March 14, 2013, Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR) and John Barrasso (R-WY) reintroduced Medicare legislation covering the services of mental health counselors (MHCs) and marriage and family therapists (MFTs) under part B of the Medicare program. The time to promote Medicare recognition of MHCs and MFTs is now. Urge your U.S. Senators to support S.562, which would authorize MHCs and MFTs to be paid by Medicare for outpatient mental health services to beneficiaries. View the bill text and sponsor introductory comments in the Congressional Record (page S1853). 

Action Requested
AMHCA members are urged to email their two U.S. Senators and urge them to co-sponsor S.562, sponsored by Senators Ron Wyden and John Barrasso. Respondents may find their Senators' e-mail address on their office websites. Download a sample e-mail message to Senate offices. 

Background and Justification
About 50 percent of rural counties have no practicing psychiatrists or psychologists. MHCs and MFTs are often the only mental health providers in many communities, yet they are not now recognized as covered providers within the Medicare program. These therapists have equivalent or greater training, education and practice rights as currently eligible provider groups that can bill for mental health services through Medicare.

Other government agencies already recognize these professions for independent practice, including The National Health Service Corps, the Dept. of Veterans' Affairs, and TRICARE. Medicare needs to utilize the skills of these providers to ensure that beneficiaries have access to these services.

a.. Lack of Access in Rural and Underserved Areas—Approximately 77 million older adults live in 3,000 mental health professional shortage areas. Fully 50 percent of rural counties in America have no practicing psychiatrists, psychologists, or social workers. However, many of these mental health professional shortage areas have MHCs whose services are underutilized due to lack of Medicare coverage. 

b.. Medicare Inefficiency—Currently, Medicare is a very inefficient purchaser of mental health services. Inpatient psychiatric hospital utilization by elderly Medicare recipients is extraordinarily high when compared to psychiatric hospitalization rates for patients covered by Medicaid, VA, TRICARE, and private health insurance. One-third of these expensive inpatient placements are caused by clinical depression and addiction disorders that can be treated for much lower costs when detected early through the outpatient mental health services of MHCs. 

c.. Underserved Minority Populations—The United State Surgeon General noted in a report entitled "Mental Health: Culture, Race, and Ethnicity" that "striking disparities in access, quality, and availability of mental health services exist for racial and ethnic minority Americans." A critical result of this disparity is that minority communities bear a disproportionately high burden of disability from untreated or inadequately treated mental disorders. 

d.. Medicare provider eligibility for MHCs and MFTs is long overdue—These two professions represent over 40 percent of today's licensed mental health practitioners. Unfortunately, Medicare has not been modernized to recognize their essential contribution in today's health delivery system. Congressional scoring rules obscure the dollars saved by utilizing their services to treat mental health conditions before they exacerbate into more serious mental and physical disorders.
