When searching for a provider of Behavior Consultation services, the RBC designation can assist in assuring that Behavior Management provider has demonstrated a high standard of both education and experience.
The designation of RBC indicates that the practitioner’s qualifications are above and beyond the minimum standards specified by the Indiana Medicaid Waiver. In addition to providing a combination of professional and ethical references during the application process, an RBC must meet the following requirements:
An RBC must be a member in good standing with IN-ABC,
- be a licensed psychologist under IC-25-33 and have an endorsement as a health service provider in psychology (HSPP) pursuant to IC 25-33-1-5.1(c);
