Help Now!

by admin on April 5, 2014

We need your help now! The COC has two pieces of legislation and we need your support. One allows vendors to work with any regional center without having to go through another vendorization process. This will result in better treatment matching for families and therefore more efficient use of funds and, most important, better outcomes. The other bill makes clear that Behavioral Health Treatment means all evidence based practices, so that insurance companies can provide better matched care, also with better outcomes and better efficiency of care. We need your letters of support. It’s easy! Click here for how to do it.

We also need your financial support for our efforts–click the green Donate Online button on the upper right portion of this homepage! We cannot bring meaningful informed consent and real choice to you without your help. Thanks so much!
