With Communication Disorders Since 1936
Can an SLP who does not have his/her CCCs bill for services in the schools?
Having current CCCs has NOT been a requirement for ESLPs working in the educational setting when billing Minnesota Health Care Programs for IEP speech services/assessments since July 1, 2000. It remains a requirement for SLPs billing outside of the educational setting. However, to bill, the ESLP must have a master’s in speech and language/communication disorders AND:
- Must be licensed by the Minnesota Board of Teaching; and
- Currently have CCCs; or
- Once upon a time had his/her CCCs but let them lapse; or
- Did everything s/he needed to do to get his/her CCCs, including working with supervision for a year (i.e. CFY requirements were completed); or
- Is currently in the clinical fellowship year getting the required supervision.
Educational Speech and Language Pathologist who meets the requirements in Minnesota Statutes, Section 256B.0625, subd. 26 – A person who holds a master’s degree in speech-language pathology, is licensed by the Minnesota Board of Teaching as an educational speech-language pathologist, AND EITHER has a certificate of clinical competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, has completed the equivalent educational requirements and work experience necessary for the certificate, OR has completed the academic program and is acquiring supervised work experience to qualify for the certificate.
Speech Pathologist – A person who has a master’s degree, a certificate of clinical competence from the American Speech and Hearing Association, and is licensed under Minnesota statutes, sections 148.511-148.5196 as a speech and language pathologist.
