September 23, 2022, UPDATE. DORA/HCPF release yet-another-draft of the RAE/HCPF supervision policy. They have relaxed the 2+ years post-licensure requirement, but are still excluding supervisors deemed safe to supervise by DORA, who have a stipulation.
September 21, 2022 Read COMBINE's concern letter regarding RAE/HCPF supervision policy. This proposed policy will reduce the available supervision workforce and extends RAE/HCPF reach into DORA's responsibilities to license and regulate supervision.
August 19, 2022 HCPF released their narrative regarding huge disparity in rates received by the independent provider network compared to CMHC rates. The report is neither "independent" as required by law, nor complete. Read their report. Read COMBINE's response.
If so, you're in the right place. You are not alone.
