Pursuant to Education Article 6-112.1 states that "Each audiologist and speech-language pathologist who meets the requirements of subsection (b) of this section shall receive from the county board an amount equal to the initial licensing fee or renewal of license fee charged by the Board." This law requires a county public school system to reimburse initial license fees and renewal fees paid to the Board of Examiners if the audiologist or speech-language pathologist conducts third-party billing in the county public school system. Licensees that meet the requirement of the foregoing should consult with their employer for more information on the reimbursement of application and license fees.
