TMA OPPOSES AUDIOLOGY SCOPE EXPANSION
Audiologists lack the “medical training necessary to perform the same duties as physicians” and aren’t able to “provide patients with the medical diagnosis and treatment options they require.” That’s the message TMA, the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, 38 state and local medical associations, and dozens of specialty societies and national organizations sent in a letter to U.S. House and Senate leaders. The letter says we strongly oppose HR 4035 by Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) and S 2046 by Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio).
