The National Team and our legislative consultant, Andrew Kretschmar, have been actively spearheading this Medicaid reimbursement legislation. In the planning of this legislation, it was clear that information is needed from music therapists to help communicate to legislators about the lack of access to services due to funding. To gather this type of information, a survey was created. The outcomes of this survey are essential when talking to legislators about significant lack of access to services due to funding. Please take a few min to complete this survey by February 1, 2024.

This link includes the Q & A portion from both Town Halls. It is essential that all music therapists living and/or working in Illinois know these details and expectations regarding the license.
Licensure Bill SB2243 was signed into law on May 27, 2022 by Governor Pritzker. We would like to thank everyone who supported these efforts!
