The Medicare Fee Schedule (MFS), based on Current Procedural Terminology (CPT codes), has governed Part B Speech-Language Pathology Medicare payments in facilities since January 1999, while audiologists have been under the system since 1992 as private practitioners. New rates, effective January 1, 2000, are considerably higher than last year’s rates and will appear even greater when compared with the facility rates of 1999. Earlier, ASHA had been advised that “facility” rates were applicable to facilities when, in fact, “non-facility” rates (i.e., office visits) can apply to hospital and skilled nursing facility visits. We await a clarification from the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) that the non-facility rate applies to other facility and agency provider settings as well.
