This webinar discusses how health care policies affect access to audiology services. The speaker presents the results of a study of (in)equity in access to audiology services in the absence of Medicare reimbursements beyond physician-referred audiology assessments.
This webinar is part of the SIGnature Series, a collection of webinars developed by volunteers from ASHA’s Special Interest Groups, who share practical, evidence-based suggestions and solutions based on their in-depth knowledge, clinical experiences, and passion for their specialty areas. This webinar was developed by SIG 8: Audiology and Public Health.
You will be able to:
- Identify practical and financial constraints audiologists experience due to current Medicare and Medicaid regulations
- Identify potential effects of Medicare and Medicaid policies on patients’ access to care
- Describe dimensions of access to hearing health care beyond insurance status and affordability
