Massage Therapy Insurance Provider Directory Audit

16 Sep 2023 10:42 AM | WSMTA (Administrator)

A WSMTA Clinical Practices Committee member, Julie Johnson, conducted an all-volunteer audit of the Regence Provider Directory from all over Washington. We wanted to have a focused effort to confirm what we’ve been hearing for years from our members and clients/patients – the medical insurance directories are inaccurate. With seventeen LMT volunteers (THANK YOU!), we could only confirm 176 individual licensed massage therapists out of 1078 directory listings were actively taking Regence in November of 2022. To read about the audit, our findings and what the OIC said, check out our article Massage Therapy Insurance Provider Directory Audit (link to

New LMT Support Group starting in November:

Many of us are working in isolation. Even in clinics with multiple practitioners, schedules usually leave little opportunity to connect with other therapists. WSMTA’s Clinical Practices Program will start offering monthly meetings to inform, discuss, vent, problem solve, and support each other. Meetings will happen on Zoom on the 1st Monday of each month, starting November 6th 2023, from 7 to 8:30pm.

Meetings are open to members, and non-members. Depending on topics, CE credits will be available for free to WSMTA members.  Non-members may join WSMTA to receive free credit as well.

Please email Dagmar Growe at to receive the zoom link before the meeting. Due to a prolonged absence, expect to receive the zoom link the day before the meeting.

WSMTA Clinical Practices Program also offers “Best Practices”, a support group for therapists and clinic owners which takes place every other month Wednesday 8 - 9am. Please email if you would like to be included on the invitation list. These meetings are held on Zoom.
