PENNSYLVANIA LICENSURE OF BEHAVIORAL SPECIALISTS

 

As part of the passage of the PA Autism Insurance Act (Act 62), there was a provision on the licensure of Behavioral Specialists. The goal of the licensure for Behavior Specialists is to effectively license and create networks of effective specialists who will be able to evaluate and implement treatment plans for children with autism.

 

Licensing requirements for Behavioral Specialists are outlined in Act 62:

 

  • Has received a master's or higher degree from a board-approved accredited college or university in a related field of study;

  • Has completed relevant educational and training programs, including but not limited to professional ethics, autism specific trainings, assessments training, crisis intervention, and family collaboration;

  • Has at least one year of experience involving functional behavior assessments;

  • And has completed at least 1000 hours in direct clinical experience with individuals with behavior challenges or at least 1000 hours experience in a related field with individuals with autism spectrum disorders.

States' recognition of BACB certificants

The listings are for example and as located; not to be exhaustive nor definitive.. 

 

"...the BCBA certification is currently recognized and services are reimbursed in only a few states (for example, Alabama, California, and Florida). Specific services for children with autism, particularly in home services, are also being reimbursed in Minnesota, Maryland, and Connecticut, although other states are working on it as well. We are developing mechanisms to coordinate information on certificate recognition and funding sources between various state and country behavior analysis organizations. In addition, we plan to develop and support training efforts directed toward strategies these organizations might employ to increase credential recognition in their areas..."

VIRGINIA (Medicaid waiver reimbursement)

 

Medicaid Memo dated 6/26/06

Effective date July 1, 2006

Accessed 2/26/08

 

"The purpose of this memorandum is to notify Medicaid providers of the changes in provider qualifications for Behavioral Therapeutic Consultation services for the Mental Retardation (MR) Waiver. The same provider qualifications will apply to the Individual and Family Developmental Disabilities Support (IFDDS) Waiver when the final regulations are effective fall 2006.

 

All providers enrolling as new Medicaid providers of behavioral therapeutic consultation on or

after July 1, 2006, must possess one of the following:

A Virginia license as a psychologist, psychiatrist, professional counselor, clinical social worker, or psychiatric clinical nurse specialist; OR

 

a certification as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) or Board Certified Associate Behavior Analyst (BCABA); OR

 

an endorsement as a Positive Behavioral Supports Facilitator issued by the Partnership for People with Disabilities at Virginia Commonwealth University. Scholarships for this program are available from the Partnership for People with Disabilities. See contact information below.

 

This will allow the provision of two additional modalities of therapeutic consultation – Positive Behavioral Supports (PBS) and Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) – to be billed as Medicaid MR Waiver services.
