Urge Congress to Oppose Medicare Direct Access for Audiologists!
The AAO-HNS needs your help to educate lawmakers on the recently introduced “Medicare Audiologist Access and Services Act” (H.R. 4056/S. 2446). If enacted, this misguided legislation would not only grant audiologists their long-sought unlimited direct access to Medicare patients without a physician referral, but it would also establish audiologists as “practitioners” under the Medicare program.
The AAO-HNS strongly opposes H.R. 4056/S. 2446 and continues to communicate our concerns to lawmakers. And, we’re not alone in our position. More than 130 national, state, and local medical societies joined the AAO-HNS in opposing similar legislation in the 115th Congress legislation. Raise your voice today to protect patient safety!
