Featured Question

Can I bill for services provided by a graduate student clinician?

In the ASHA Issues in Ethics statement, Ethical Issues Related to Clinical Services Provided by Audiology and Speech-Language Students (2013), it states that "the ASHA Code of Ethics [2010] recognizes the professional acceptability of appropriately supervised clinical practice by students; hence, there is no basis for suggesting or requiring that fees charged for services delivered by students differ in any way from the fees typically charged for services provided by certified audiologists or speech-language pathologists." Therefore, billing for such services is allowable, provided those services meet or exceed professional standards of supervision.

Payers differ in their regulations regarding paying for services provided by student clinicians. Medicare coverage of student clinicians differs depending on setting and whether the person is a Part A or Part B beneficiary. To find out the requirements for private payers, it is best to contact them directly as each will differ and may or may not follow Medicare's regulations.
