Ohio RxP Bill Introduced!

A psychologist prescribing bill, SB 300 was introduced in the Ohio Senate. Sponsor testimony was given by Sen. Seitz on May 4 with OPA testimony given on May 11. The next step planned is for the representatives of Ohio psychiatrists and psychologists to meet. The bill is in the Senate Health Committee with two co-sponsors (Sen. Manning and Sen.Tavares) are on the committee. The bill reportedly has much support from a number of Senators who are aware of the significant need for improved access to mental health care and prescriptive authority for appropriately trained psychologists.
