Geisinger becomes the first member of Risant Health

On Dec. 23, 2022, the Mental Health Access Improvement Act (S.828/ H.R.432) was signed into law allowing licensed professional counselors (LPCs) and marriage and family therapists (MFTs) to enroll as Medicare providers. As of Jan. 1, 2024, ap­proved services provided by LPCs and MFTs became eligible for Medicare reimbursement.

Our Geisinger Gold Medicare Advantage plans also began reimbursing LPCs and MFTs for approved services as of Jan. 1. Already providing quality be­havioral healthcare for non-Medicare Geisinger Health Plan members? Our contracting team may email you to join us in extending access to Geisinger Gold members.

If you’re referring Geisinger Gold members for certain behavioral health services in 2024, know that they’ll have more in-network providers to choose from. Always check our online provider search so you can help your Geisinger Health Plan patients see providers who accept their plan.
