This bill will prevent Medicaid funds from being used to pay for so-called 'conversion therapy,' a practice that has been discredited by many medical and civil rights organizations. Currently, states decide which services Medicaid can cover and many have not banned conversion therapy. This bill will legally define conversion therapy and ensure that it is not paid for through deceptive billing practices for mental and behavioral health.
