  • Medicare: Although guidance was received from CMS on March 31, 2020 that clinicians would now have the ability to provide more services using telehealth, ASHA has clarified that at this time, the interim final rule does not expand this ability to include speech-language pathologists.  
 
  • The interim final rule added procedure codes typically billed by SLPs (e.g., 92523 and 92507) to the list of services that could be delivered via telepractice, but the rule does not authorize SLPs as providers (we are currently considered "suppliers" rather than "providers").  Click HERE to read more about this issue on the ASHA website.
