Medical Credentialing for Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselors: Is it an option?
Question: Is it possible for a Master’s level Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor to get on insurance panels? If not, is there any way for me to bill insurance within a private practice where others are licensed psychologists and social workers (i.e. if they co-sign)?
Answer: While there are always exceptions, CAADC providers are not eligible for medical credentialing unless they are also fully licensed. In addition, for most behavioral health practices, a provider cannot bill under another providers license. Again, though, there are always exceptions. Good luck!
