SLP Advocacy/Action Alert! Ask Congress for IDEA Funding in Next COVID-19 Stimulus
Ensure Future COVID-19 Legislation Recognizes the Needs of Audiologists, SLPs, and Those They Serve! Tell Congress that any future COVID-19 legislation should provide:
- an additional $12.8B in funding for IDEA;
- a solution to ensure that budget neutrality for the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule does not result in reimbursement cuts to audiologists and SLPs in 2021 and beyond;
- permanent authority to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary to allow audiologists and SLPs to bill Medicare for telehealth services; and
- hazard pay for front line SLPs who work in settings such as hospitals and skilled nursing facilities.
