Summary: Due to the rapidly changing climate in dysphagia management, adhering to recent changes in billing and documentation standards and procedures can be challenging for SLPs. In this on demand webinar, speakers will identify common pitfalls and discuss strategies to meet expectations, so clinicians can avoid unethical decisions, prevent dings, and maximize local coverage for dysphagia reimbursement. The speakers will also illustrate how advocating for accurate representation in SLP billing and documentation supports clinician competency and patient outcomes. This webinar – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 13: Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders (Dysphagia).

Summary: In this on demand webinar, members of ASHA’s Health Care Economics Committee explain and discuss recent CPT and ICD-10-CM coding updates for audiologists and the 2022 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule, including payment changes and the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). Speakers present frequently asked coding and billing questions and review clinical examples to illustrate how audiologists should apply codes for proper coding and billing.
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.15
Summary: These Perspectives (SIG 8) articles cover a wide range of audiology and public health topics. Konrad-Martin and colleagues promote effective and standardized coding and third payer billing practices for the audiological management of symptomatic ototoxicity. The article includes relevant ICD-10-CM codes and CPT codes. Myers and Dundas provide a review of the effects of noise on the vestibular system. They note that temporary and permanent effects of noise on the vestibular system have been reported and advocate for further investigations to unpack the complex relationship between the auditory and vestibular systems. Finally, Pletnikova and colleagues conducted a quality initiative project to determine the feasibility and reliability of a tablet-based portable audiometer to identify hearing loss in a cognitively impaired population.

Summary: This on demand webinar will discuss how health care policies affect access to audiology services. The speaker will present 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 – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 8: Audiology and Public Health.
