Ability of Certified Peer Recovery Specialist to offer services in Psychosocial Rehabilitation H2017

The Virginia Leadership Network proposes DMAS allow Certified Peer Recovery Specialists (CPRS) to bill for services offered at Psychosocial Rehabilitation (H2017). 

We propose Chapter IV, p. 44 to be amended as follows:

Service Requirements.

1. Psychosocial rehabilitation services may be provided by an LMHP, LMHP-S, LMHP-R, LMHP-RP, QMHP-A, QMHP-C, QMHP-E, QPPMH, or a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist under the supervision of a QMHP-A, QMHP-C, LMHP, LMHP-S, LMHP-R, or LMHP-RP. 

We propose similar language in Chapter II also be amended to ensure congruence in the language throughout the manual. 

Respectfully submitted,

Wanda L. Reese on behalf of Virginia Leadership Network
