Jun 27, 2011 by

Calling all Medicare Hearing Health Care patients! We have important news that concerns you. Representative Mike Ross and 11 other co-sponsors introduced the Medicare Hearing Health Care Enhancement Act of 2011. What does this mean for you? Well, it will make things much easier when trying to go to an audiologist.

The Medicare Hearing Health Care Enhancement Act of 2011 or H.R. 2140 will allow patients to go straight to their audiologist without the need to go to the physician for a referral first. Currently, federal and congressional employees have direct access to an audiologist. Hopefully, this bill will cut out the middle man and allow patients to directly get to the doctor they need.  The bill will need help from audiologist to promote it to gain awareness by lawmakers. The more this information is shared and the louder the people are about their desire for this bill to be passed the better chance it will have.

If you or someone you know falls into the benefits of this bill, make sure you and your friends are aware of what this bill means. HearFlorida is devoted to helping this bill gain awareness. You can help by making sure audiologists in your area are aware of The Medicare Hearing Health Care Enhancement Act of 2011.
