Report on Infant-Early Childhood Mental Health (IECMH) dyadic services & billing

Barnard Center and Washington Association for Infant Mental Health recently published a report regarding the Infant-Early Childhood Mental Health (IEMCH) dyadic services and billing survey. The survey was sent out in the fall of 2021 and gathered information from clinicians working with children from birth through age five and their families in Washington State. Respondents were asked about their experiences billing for dyadic mental health services. Read the report.

In response to feedback related to Apple Health, Health Care Authority (HCA) has provided an appendix to address the needs and challenges raised by clinicians. HCA’s response can be found on pages 14-16 of the report. As noted in the response, we are seeking to foster connections with the IECMH field and developing a broader communication strategy.
