Presenter(s): Meagan Bachmann, AuD, MHL
Course Description

In the evolving environment of over-the-counter hearing aids, big box stores, and changing reimbursement, should audiologists charge differently for hearing aid services? This webinar explores why itemizing services or providing a hybrid model of service delivery could be beneficial, how this model was implemented at one medical center, and how to determine what to bill.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • Describe reasons why audiologists may need to amend their service delivery models
  • Identify CPT codes that can be used to bill hearing aid services
  • Describe how to determine what to charge for services
