Tell Congress to Address Impending Medicare Part B Payment Cuts
The Supporting Medicare Providers Act of 2021 (H.R. 6020/S. 3314) is legislation that would address impending Medicare Part B payment cuts to audiology and speech-language pathology services. Ask your federal representatives to fully address looming Medicare payment cuts to health care providers, including audiologists and speech-language pathologists (SLPs), that will limit beneficiary access to critical hearing, balance, speech, language, swallowing, and cognitive care.

In December 2021, Congress acted to partially mitigate Medicare Part B payments cuts to outpatient services provided by audiologists and SLPs that were set to take effect in 2022. However, Congress must reverse these cuts in their entirety and work toward a long-term solution to prevent persistent threats to Medicare reimbursement.
