Featured Question

Does Medicare cover speech generating devices?

For a speech generating device (SGD) to be covered by Medicare, it must:
  • be eligible for a defined Medicare benefit category
  • be reasonable and necessary for the diagnosis or treatment of illness or injury or to improve the functioning of a malformed body member
  • meet all other applicable Medicare statutory and regulatory requirements
Prior to the delivery of the SGD, the patient has had a formal evaluation of their cognitive and communication abilities by a speech-language pathologist (SLP). Find additional information regarding payment and coverage rules on the ASHA website.
