Making sense of Medicaid can be frustrating for providers, because coverage and billing rules are different from state to state—and even within a state. A new toolkit for audiologists and speech-language pathologists who participate in the Medicaid program provides a helpful starting point as they traverse their way through the system.
Medicaid is jointly funded by the federal and state governments to help states provide medical care—including audiology and speech-language services—to those who are low-income or medically needy. Each state administers its own program within broad federal guidelines and establishes its own eligibility standards, covered services and payment rates.
The toolkit addresses key Medicaid issues relevant to all Medicaid programs:
  • Medical necessity

  • Qualified providers

  • Medicaid in schools

  • Medicaid state plans

  • Credentialing

  • Documentation

  • Early and periodic screening, diagnosis and treatment

  • Managed care

  • Medicaid expansion

  • Medicaid integrity program

  • Supervision

  • Telepractice
