Urge Congress to Oppose “Physician” Status for Audiologists!
The AAO-HNS needs your help to educate lawmakers on the so-called “Audiology Patient Choice Act” (H.R. 2276/S. 2575). If enacted, this legislation would not only grant audiologists their long-sought unlimited direct access to Medicare patients without a physician referral, but it would also establish audiologists as “limited license physicians” under the Medicare program.
The AAO-HNS strongly opposes H.R. 2276/S. 2575 and continues to communicate our concerns to lawmakers. And, we’re not alone in our position. More than 130 national, state, and local medical societies have joined the AAO-HNS in opposing this ill-advised legislation.
