HB 1063: Allowing additional renewals for behavioral health professional trainee and associate credentials

Currently, a certified substance use disorder professional trainee can provide substance use disorder assessments, counseling, and case management with a state regulated agency as approved by their supervisor and the certification may only be renewed four times.  HB1063 allows the secretary to issue a waiver to allow additional renewals due to barriers to testing or training resulting from a governor-declared emergency.

Also, currently, associate licenses can be renewed no more than six times; however, the HB1063 will allow the secretary to find that additional renewals are justified due to barriers to testing or training resulting from a governor-declared emergency.

Changes to licensing requirements will take effect immediately.
