As many individuals involved in academic preparation are aware, on July 30, the Health Care Finance Administration (HCFA) published the final regulations for the skilled nursing facility (SNF) prospective payment system (PPS). The HCFA regulations included language that negates the value of student-delivered treatment; that is, only time associated with a licensed or certified speech-language pathologist or clinical fellow will be considered for establishing actual treatment in the MDS for the PPS classification.
In the past, HCFA has been silent in regulations and guidelines about speech-language pathology students providing services.
The most relevant regulations concerned assistants and the supervision requirements. In this regard, HCFA has determined that the services of assistants are regulated by the states consistent with licensure or certification, while this is not the case for graduate students.
