New Billing Possibilities for ABA Practitioners

Several years ago the ABAI Executive Council endorsed a plan to seek recognition by the American Medical Association of ABA assessments and interventions. As of July 1, 2014 three assessment and seven intervention methods have been recognized as having scientific merit, and thereby justifying coverage by health care insurers, including Medicaid. In the coming months ABAI will be sponsoring regional workshops, webinars, and other means to introduce ABA practitioners to new current procedural terminology (CPT) billing codes. Learn more.
