Patricia Adams started this petition to New Directions Behavioral Health

In late 2016, New Directions Behavioral Health, the administrators of mental health benefits for Blue Cross of Florida subscribers, made the drastic decision to slash the reimbursement rates of mental health professionals. Many therapists cancelled their contracts, leaving thousands of their subscribers without access to mental health counseling. Since this time, NDBH has issued no rate increases to mental health professionals. During a time in our society when mental health issues are increasing, this company places their bottom line interests ahead of the needs of Florida Blue subscribers. We are collectively requesting a rate increase to bring reimbursement rates to a reasonable amount, in alignment with their competitors.
