A New Day Dawns for Medicare SGD Coverage:
What Do SLPs, Medicare Beneficiaries, and Families Need to Know?

In late July, Medicare issued a new National Coverage Decision for SGDs and the President signed the Steve Gleason Act. These developments mark a new beginning for Medicare SGD coverage. Presented by USSAAC and hosted by ISAAC, this session explains the the types and features of SGDs that Medicare will now cover and pay for; the additional capabilities and features that SGDs can offer; and how Medicare beneficiaries will be able to access those additional capabilities and features. It also explains how the 2015 NCD and Gleason Act will affect SLP assessment and reporting.

Presenters: Lewis Golinker, Esq., AAC Advocate Facilitator, and Lisa Bardach, MS CCC-SLP  Facilitated by:  Amy Goldman, Speech-Language Pathologist
