Please check out the ASHA TAKE ACTION website and the federal campaign to fight the Medicare payments cuts in 2023.
ASHA has a written a letter to CMS and has asked members to review the issue, review the petition and to become a signatory, by completing the form that is below the petition (ASHA Take Action website) by September 1, 2022. ASHA will only include your name and state in the final letter.

Here is an overview of the issue:
“Help fight the impending payment cuts for Medicare Part B services in 2023 by signing a letter to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Medicare payments are set to decrease by nearly 4.5% for outpatient services provided by audiologists, speech-language pathologists (SLPs), and many other providers, on top of other looming cuts. Although a short-term fix will require Congressional action, ASHA is asking clinicians to sign a petition calling on CMS to find ways within its own authority to lessen the impact of the cuts and to work with Congress to find solutions to improve the long-term stability of the Medicare payment system.”
