Effective January 1, 2014, Current Procedural Terminology (CPT, ©American Medical Association) code 92506 (Evaluation of speech, language, voice, communication, and/or auditory processing) was deleted and replaced with four new, more specific evaluation codes related to language, speech sound production, voice and resonance, and fluency disorders. This live event chat will help clarify some of the questions related to the new CPT codes for speech-language pathology services. The following panelists will answer questions:
- Neela Swanson, BA, is ASHA's Director of Health Care Coding Policy. She serves as a resource for ASHA members regarding coding and reimbursement and works with the American Medical Association, ASHA members, and other specialty societies on coding issues related to audiology and speech-language pathology.

She has authored numerous resources about reimbursement and has worked extensively on issues related to CPT and ICD-9 billing codes and health plan appeals. She holds a graduate degree in speech-language pathology from the University of Virginia.
This free event is open to all ASHA members (it is not offered for CEUs).
