State Network Representatives

ASHA's Government Affairs and Public Policy department has developed networks with representatives from individual states. Each of these networks focus on a different priority issue.

State Education Advocacy Leaders (SEALs)
The SEALs network is to enhance and perpetuate the advocacy, leadership, and clinical management skills of school-based ASHA members at the state and local levels to influence administrative and public policy decisions that affect the delivery of speech-language pathology and audiology services in school settings.

State Advocates for Medicare Policy (StAMPs) Network
SHA's State Advocates for Medicare Policy (StAMP) network enhances and perpetuates the advocacy, leadership, and communication of ASHA members at the state level to influence administrative and public policy decisions that impact the Medicare coverage, reimbursement, and delivery of speech-language pathology services and audiology services.

State Advocates for Reimbursement (STARs)
The State Advocates for Reimbursement (STARs) are ASHA-member audiologists and speech-language pathologists who advocate locally with legislators, state insurance commissioners, health plans, unions, and employers on matters related to Medicaid and private health plan reimbursement.
