AUDIOLOGY ADVOCATE | Academy Kicks Off 116th Congress with In-Person Congressional Visits

The 2018 mid-term elections left a reshaped Congress, with nearly 100 new representatives and senators coming to Washington, DC. This much turnover has led to great opportunities for the Academy’s government relations department to build relationships with new members of Congress, many of whom have not held elected office before. The new class is the most diverse and the most educated in congressional history.

ACAE CORNER | Comorbid Conditions Associated with Hearing Loss: Another Challenge in Educating AuD Students

A growing body of research confirms a connection between hearing loss and a variety of chronic diseases and disorders (for reviews see Abrams, 2017; Besser et al, 2018). The medical term “comorbidities” is appearing increasingly in the audiological literature and also in clinical conversations about patient diagnosis and management. Audiologists have long known that specific often acute disease processes are related directly to different types of hearing loss.

ABA SOUNDING BOARD | ABA Is Changing for You!

Twenty years ago, a group of Academy members came together to develop a certification that would serve audiologists by verifying credentials in an independent process that offers an alternative to the American Speech–Language–Hearing Association Certificate of Clinical Competence–Audiology. They developed a program of rigorous education and experience verification with strong continuing education requirements and called it Board Certified in Audiology, in recognition of the substantial requisites.

SAA SPOTLIGHT | Red Bird Mission: An Opportunity for Humanitarian Audiology

One of the Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) Development Committee’s goals is to promote humanitarian work among our chapters. We believe these kinds of experiences allow students to develop a broader perspective in audiology by acquiring important skills to practice empathy and compassion as a fundamental part of interaction with a patient. Consequently, this committee is working on creating opportunities to develop these kinds of skills.

CODING AND REIMBURSEMENT | New Medicare LCD Process—What You Need to Know

Local coverage determination (LCD) policies issued by Medicare administrative contractors (MACs) serve as the workhorse of Medicare coverage policy. About 90 percent of coverage determinations are made through LCDs. Coverage policies include a defined list of services the insurer will cover and specific exclusions. Medicare provides coverage of services that are determined to be “reasonable and necessary” for Medicare beneficiaries. If a specific item or service is not covered under an LCD, this does not mean it isn’t covered. Claims may be adjudicated on a case-by-case basis.

PUBLIC RELATIONS | Gaining Media Coverage from Partnerships and Special Events

Not everyone has a newsworthy story, and even some events don’t even have enough depth to interest media. Think through community partnerships and outreach that will generate visibility, give back to your community, and interest media. 

Strategically, it’s important that the partnership and event you create generates visibility that also promotes your business. For instance, if you do not treat children, it would be a miss to hold an event that provides hearing testing for children.
