Audiologists and SLPs are facing declining Medicare Part B payment rates due to a variety of cuts Congress and regulators have put into place. On top of these annual cuts, providers are being impacted by rising inflation that is increasing the cost of providing care to Medicare beneficiaries, without commensurate increases in Medicare payments to offset rising costs. Congress must take common sense steps, such as legislation to update Medicare payment rates in accordance with MEI, to stabilize provider payments and preserve access to care.
