About Arizona Audiology Coalition

Thank you for visiting Arizona Audiology Coalition's website.  We are happy to have you here!


Political Advocacy:

August 2019 Update:

This past week, you voted in support of H.R. 4056- The Medicare Audiologist Access and Services Act, a bill that is currently in the House of Representatives. The companion bill in the Senate is in the wings (click here for more info).  As a reflection of your votes, the Arizona Audiology Coalition is officially endorsing support for H.R. 4056. 

Recall, this bill is jointly endorsed by AAA, ADA, and ARSHA.  H.R. 4056 would remove unnecessary barriers for Medicare patients as they would no longer need a referral from their primary care physician for a hearing or vestibular exam.  In addition, audiologists would be reclassified by Medicare as practitioners which is consistent with how Medicare recognizes other providers.

What must our membership do NOW to help move this initiative forward?

A.      It’s critical for each of us to send a message of support to our House Representatives, and it is easily done by following the link here. It only takes a moment and the letters are already composed. PLEASE, we have the support from all three national organizations, so the time for an Arizona grassroots effort is now!

B.      Once you send the letters, ask coworkers, family, friends and our patients to support the bill and send a letter to their Congress person. 

C.      To take this a step further, contact your Congressperson’s office to speak to them or someone in their office who deals with healthcare.
