ABA therapist and bcbs contracting
« on: August 20, 2010, 11:29:22 AM »
I have an aba therapist who wants to become a contracted provider with bcbs.
They do not need a license to practice, so she does not have one.
Does she need to be a PHd to get a contract, or do the requirements change for therapists because they do not need a license?

You would have to contact BCBS to find out what they require.
