Are we able to bill for services rendered by associate level mental health providers (LPCAs, CSWs) under the NPI of the fully-licensed supervisor (LPC, LSCW) for commercial payers? I have had a couple of payers tell me yes, but someone at my company is telling me this is absolutely not allowed with any commercial payer. Does anyone know of any commercial payers that do not allow this?

We don't have the levels you are speaking of, so I am unclear if those associate level providers are licensed or not. If they are not licensed, then no, you cannot bill them.
