You only describe this person as a "psych doctor." Is this a PhD or PsyD Psychologist or a Psychiatrist (MD/DO)?
If the provider is a psychologist, his/her intern would still be considered a student and you could not bill for any services supplied to Medicare/Medicaid patients and expect reimbursement. Student services are never billable under those programs, and usually not to any third-party insurers either.
The "intern" may be interning for a psychiatrist. This would fall under Medicare Resident Supervision Guidelines, but would require that these intern providers have their license. They'd have had to graduate medical school and pass the state licensing exam . . . at least as far as I know. I am not an expert on the Medicare Supervision Guidelines for Residents, as my employer uses a different set of guidelines.
Please be sure you search for the Medicare rules on students and residents before agreeing. This may not be a service that you can recoup money on, just so you know.
