Audiologic/Aural Rehabilitation Reimbursement Issues

There are four Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes related to audiologic/aural rehabilitation (AR) that apply to both audiologists and speech-language pathologists. Prior to 2006, assessment of aural rehabilitation status was included as part of CPT code 92506 and aural rehabilitation itself as part of CPT code 92507.

AR Codes

92626 Evaluation of auditory rehabilitation status, 1st hour

92627 each additional 15 minutes

92630 Auditory rehabilitation; pre-lingual hearing loss

92633 Auditory rehabilitation; post-lingual hearing loss

Note regarding Medicare scope of coverage: Medicare restricts coverage of audiology services to diagnostic testing only. Medicare is also clear that SLPs must use CPT 92507 for treatment services including auditory rehabilitation.
