State Task Force

Colorado State Task Force

In 2008, the Colorado State Task Force was established.  It consists of dedicated music therapists who work closely with the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT) and the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) to increase state recognition of the MT-BC credential. 

The task force meets with legislators and state agencies to increase music therapy recognition, which will increase both funding for music therapy and access to services for Coloradans. Furthermore, the state task force partners with CAMT to establish a grassroots effort and rally Colorado music therapists together. 


Currently the task force is in the process of meeting with the State Department of Education to address music therapy access issues for students in the public school system. 

Redesign for music therapy under Colorado Medicaid Waivers has been postponed because other waivers will be expiring sooner. We have no update on when they will be revised. The new name for Colorado Medicaid is Colorado Health First.
