Continuing education is a key element for the ongoing success and progression of a massage therapist's career. We recognize that continuing education (CE) courses take time, effort, and cost money. And while most courses and instructors deliver on the expected value, others have not hit the mark.

Initially, the PEIA Finance Board considered discontinuing massage therapy coverage altogether as a cost-savings measure, but with input from NCBTMB, the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) and practicing therapists, it will still cover active employees and non-Medicare retirees who visit massage therapists with national certification.
