Congress and federal departments are considering or acting on changes in health care delivery, scrutinizing the cost of hearing aids, and examining the encroachment of hearing aid dispensers on audiology’s scope of practice.
In the May issue of Access Audiology, Ingrida Lusis, ASHA director of federal and political advocacy, takes a look at these legislative and policy initiatives. The issue also discusses the importance of Medicare coverage and ASHA-sponsored legislation that would add audiology services other than diagnostics as a covered Medicare benefit.
