On May 28, 2004, the CMS posted its Final Rule for Medicaid Provider Qualifications for Audiologists. You can refer to the Federal Register for CMS-2132-F for details of this final rule. This final rule revises the existing Medicaid regulations governing audiologists to adopt the Medicare standards to recognize state licensure as a qualifying provider standard. The revised Medicaid standards incorporate recognition of state licensure in defining a qualified Medicaid audiologist, provided the state license meets or exceeds the CCC-A or Medicare definition of audiologist (i.e., 1993 CCC requirements). Audiologists who reside in states without licensure or states that exempt audiologists from licensure based on institutional setting (schools) will be required to document that they have the CCC-A or meet the Medicare standard.
