School-based speech-language pathologists are often expected to approve the paperwork submitted by individuals who are not certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) for the purposes of Medicaid billing. This paper is designed to (a) provide information regarding the Medicaid language that enables services to be provided by non-qualified personnel; (b) provide specific ASHA recommendations regarding the qualifications of the supervisor and supervisee and amount and type of supervision; and (c) discuss legal and ethical issues. With planning, procedures can be put in place to improve service delivery and documentation for students eligible when Medicaid services are provided by non-qualified personnel “under the direction of” a qualified speech-language pathologist.
