The reimbursement landscape for SLP services continues to change, as the trend moves toward payment models that focus on outcomes rather than quantity of services rendered. This program will help SLPs stay current on changes that affect coding and billing. Participants will receive the latest coding and reimbursement updates to Current Procedural Terminology (CPT codes) and rules concerning their use, as well as changes to the 2015 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule as they relate to speech-language pathology, and tips on preparing for the International Classification of Diseases, 10th revision (ICD-10). Health care payment systems, such as Medicare Part A, Medicare Part B, Medicaid, and private health insurance, may differ among practice settings (e.g., acute care, skilled nursing care, outpatient). We will define and differentiate these payment systems and answer participants’ questions.
