MHD will reimburse psychologists for ABA services only if they have been approved for the ABA specialty. MHD enrolled Psychologists who have ABA in their scope of education, training, and competence may submit documentation of their credentials for consideration.This documentation may be submitted as a provider update via fax to the Provider Enrollment Unit at 573-634-3105.

If not already enrolled, psychologists may submit supporting documentation and request approval for the ABA specialty at the time of enrollment. Psychologists will be notified by email whether they have been approved for the ABA specialty. Technicians who provide direct implementation of ABA services under the supervision of a licensed provider must be credentialed by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board as a Registered Behavior TechnicianTM (RBT). The supervisory relationship must be documented in writing, and the licensed supervisor is responsible for the work performed by the RBT. Services provided by an RBT must be billed by the licensed supervisor using the codes and modifiers specified under Procedure Codes, Limits, and Rates shown below. RBTs are not allowed to enroll as MHD providers.
