A07729 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A7729
 
SPONSOR: Jaffee
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to a limited license for a speech-language pathologist   PURPOSE: To establish a limited license category for Speech-Language-Patholo- gists.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill adds a new Section 8206-a to the Education Law to provide authority to the State Education Department to issue a limited licensure to an applicant for a license as a speech-language-patholo- gist. The speech-language-pathologist must have completed the Master's degree program and have either received or is pending receipt of the Master's diploma in order to apply for a limited license. A limited license would be valid for one year, provided that it may be renewed for additional one year periods until such time as may be necessary to complete an experience requirement for a professional license. Section 2 of the bill provides that the bill is effective 180 days after enactment.   JUSTIFICATION Federal regulations (42 CFR 484.4) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) require a Speech-Language-Pathologist to be licensed to be eligible to participate in the Medicare program. New York State is one of only 7 states that does not have a "limited license" category to allow clinical fellows to practice during the completion of their expe- rience requirements. This bill establishes a limited license for Speech- Language-Pathologists in State law so that clinical fellows who are engaging in clinical practice under the supervision of a licensed Speech-Language-Pathologist during the time necessary to complete an experience requirement can participate in the Medicare program.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New legislation.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS None to the State. However, this bill will increase employment opportu- nities for Speech-Language Pathologists.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect 180 days after enactment.
