TMA OPPOSES BILL TO EXPAND AUDIOLOGISTS' SCOPE

TMA and more than 110 national organizations, state and local medical associations, and state and local specialty societies delivered a clear message to members of the U.S. Congress: Oppose any efforts to give audiologists direct, unlimited access to Medicare patients without a physician referral and to include audiologists in the definition of physician. The groups outlined their opposition to House Resolution 5304 in a letter to Congress. “Audiologists are not physicians and should not be considered as such under the Medicare program,” the letter states.
