The Outpatient Medicare Physician Fee Schedule
Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Services
Audiology and speech-language pathology services under Medicare Part B (outpatient) have reimbursement rates established by the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) regardless of provider setting, except for outpatient audiology services provided in hospitals. This site provides information on the MPFS for audiologists and speech-language pathologists, including in-depth analysis of relevant policy changes and revisions to the fee schedule, Medicare Part B payment rules, geographic adjustment calculations, and new developments. The fee schedule is updated annually by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
