Have you had society members ask for a template regarding the HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices and Business Associate Agreement? CSWA has created them with legal assistance for members to use.
Are any of your members looking to opt out of or into Medicare? CSWA has the templates for members to process Medicare opt out forms.
Do you want to know what will be happening at the national level that will affect private practices that directly affect your members? CSWA has you covered with legislative alerts, letters to Congress, and position papers.
As a CSWA partner, you give your members opportunities to tap into the many different efforts that the national association is working on. Some projects currently under development include:
None of CSWA’s goals can be met without the support of many of the 234,000 LCSWs and all clinical social work state societies. Group affiliation with state associations allows us to be a collective voice that helps to strengthen our influence at the national level. Working together we reinforce the needs of the profession. CSWA invites you to join with the other state societies to advocate for clinical social work interests at both the state and the national level. CSWA’s affiliation with your state society along with individual memberships of licensed clinical social workers is crucial to OUR profession.
I am delighted as the CSWA State Affiliate Liaison to be your contact person with CSWA. In the next few weeks I will be making contact again to inquire about your interest in becoming an affiliated society, what the benefits will be for your society, and to explain how affiliation can take place. Let’s work together to bring clinical social work to all in our country who need our services!
