The passage of this federal legislation would allow for:
Limited License Physician Status within Medicare - Would allow audiologists the autonomy to make clinical recommendations and practice the full scope of audiology and vestibular care as allowed by their state license and as dictated by their educational requirements and competencies.
Medicare Direct Access - Would eliminate the need for the physician order required for a Medicare beneficiary to receive coverage of medically necessary, covered audiology and vestibular services.
Comprehensive Medicare Benefits - Would allow for expanded coverage to include all Medicare-covered audiologic services that audiologists are licensed by their states to provide, including medically necessary, covered treatment services such as vestibular rehabilitation, cerumen removal, and aural rehabilitation.
Contact Your Congressional Representative Today and Urge Support for the Audiology Patient Choice Act of 2015 (H.R. 2519)
H.R. 2519 is bi-partisan, common-sense legislation that, if enacted, will allow audiology patients with Medicare coverage to have the same access to audiology care that most Americans and all of Congress already have through private insurers.
Audiology Patient Choice Act, H.R. 2519
To amend title XVIII of the Social Security Act to provide for treatment of audiologists as physicians for purposes of furnishing audiology services under the Medicare program, to improve access to the audiology services available for coverage under the Medicare program and to enable beneficiaries to have their choice of a qualified audiologist to provide such services, and for other purposes.
Maybe you know of others that have these questions. Even people that are treating their hearing loss don’t always have the answers to these questions. It’s our goal to educate the community with our outreach program. There is no cost to have one of our doctors of audiology present to your group. The doctors and office managers are committed to life-long learning; we enjoy stretching that beyond the walls of our practice to help educate communities about hearing health. We’ll gladly come to your location and share information about healthy hearing in today’s world.
We’ve been invited to speak for some fantastic groups at local churches, health fairs, physician's offices, universities, adult communities and active adult clubs. We’ve had the pleasure of meeting some truly wonderful people and are grateful to everyone that has invited us to present. If you have a group that is interested in learning about hearing health, communication strategies, the evolution of hearing technology, etc. please contact us to schedule a presentation.
