In favor of allowing residents in counseling to direct bill
I am in favor of removing the restriction on residents in counseling directly billing and accepting payment for their services.  Residents do need to make it clear that they are working under clinical supervision and are not practicing independently. Residents inability to directly bill and accept payments for services is an unneeded hurtle that complicates issues for both the resident and his/her clinical supervisor. This regulation imposes a hardship on clerical duties with no benefit. Please remove this obstacle.
