CODING AND REIMBURSEMENT | Advanced Beneficiary Notice of Noncoverage Use: Mandatory or Voluntary?

Understanding the correct use of the Advance Beneficiary Notice of Noncoverage (ABN) Form CMS-R-131 is important to ensure billing compliance for traditional Medicare (Part B). Audiologists may face challenges determining when Medicare covers a service and when an ABN is required. Federal law requires that providers, including audiologists, must notify a Medicare beneficiary in advance when a service that Medicare typically covers is likely to be denied and/or when the item or service is not considered by Medicare to be medically reasonable and necessary. The ABN meets this requirement.

CSI AUDIOLOGY | When Is Ménière’s Disease Not Ménière’s Disease?

Dizziness is a common complaint, with approximately 35 percent of adults reporting dizziness, with the prevalence increasing dramatically with age (Agrawal, 2009). As the profession of audiology has evolved, so has our understanding of the various disorders that cause imbalance and dizziness. This article will walk you through the case of Sunny Susan (patient’s name changed to protect identity), a woman who I first saw as a balance patient after she had spent over 22 years struggling with recurrent dizziness and progressive hearing loss.

ACAE CORNER | The Importance of the Accreditation Site Visit to the Accreditation Agency and the Program

ACAE prides itself on having the most sophisticated, interactive, and up-to-date electronic system for accreditation not only for audiology, but the electronic platform rivals any other discipline for seamless data entry, retrieval, interaction between reviewers and programs, and ability to update with minimal effort. 

So why hasn’t all this wonderful technology done away with the (historically dreaded) site visit? The site visit remains critical to the accreditation agency and the program, and if done correctly, does not need to be dreaded by either party.

SAA SPOTLIGHT | Get On Our Level!

As members of the Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) Board, we often hear that one of the greatest challenges local SAA chapters and our student members face is incorporating advocacy into their daily and chapter activities. When students think about advocacy, it tends to be on a large scale. We envision pictures of students standing in front of the Capitol in Washington, DC. with their folders, clipboards, and leave-behinds.
