Legislative Breakfast

 Each February, IPA members meet with state legislators in the Capitol in Des Moines to discuss issues relevant to Iowa psychologists and to advocate for our profession. In 2021, our legislative priorities included:

  1. Support parity in telehealth and no restrictions on platform used by providers.
  2. Expand the postdoctoral psychologist training program to additional underserved communities.
  3. Allow licensed psychologists to receive reimbursement for psychological services performed by pre-doctoral interns under their direct supervision.
  4. Continue to advocate for and protect the value of psychology licensure.
  5. Support ongoing implementation of prescribing authority for specially-trained psychologists.
  6. Uphold Iowa patient protection and provider qualification requirements for services rendered to Iowans.
