Temp License Can Now Bill 3rd Party
From the December 2022 LPC Licensure Board Meeting: The Board addressed the issues of compensation for pre-licensed post-graduates and adopted the following policy: Post-graduates working towards LPC/MHSP licensure may receive third party payments in accordance with 0450-01-.01 (11). This licensure rule requires the individual hold an LPC/MHSP temporary license if they wish to receive direct payment from an individual, organization or insurer. Payment arrangements with the practice setting should be directly coordinated between the Clinical Setting and the post-graduate. The board cannot advise on payment arrangements, including if the arrangement qualifies as a W-2 or 1099 agreement and recommends individuals consult a tax attorney for further guidance.
