Billing for audiology services can be unclear and vary from payer to payer. The guidance below includes a review of both diagnosis and procedure coding. Procedure code guidance is based on the American Medical Association’s Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) coding definitions. However, Medicaid and private payers may elect to include, omit, or further define codes for billing the benefits they allow. Always check with your primary payer regarding appropriate billing and coding guidelines.
