    Dear Colleague:


    I would like to cordially invite you to an evening of light refreshments and a lecture by renowned speech-language pathologist Jackie Gartner-Schmidt PhD SLP-CCC at the Indiana University School of Medicine Voice Center on May 15 at 4:30 PM.  Dr Gartner-Schmidt is the co-director of the University of Pittsburgh Voice Center and is recognized as a leading expert in care of voice disorders; she will be giving a lecture on “The Black Box of Voice Therapy”.


    The Indiana University School of Medicine Voice Center is a new center as part of the Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery.  The center functions on a model of true inter-professional care of voice, airway, and swallowing disorders.  My professional philosophy holds essential the collaborative efforts between physicians, speech-language pathologists, and others in the voice world and I am excited to be able to foster that collaborative spirit with programs like this that bring our fields together.


    Please feel free to invite others in your department that may have an interest in attending.  I ask that you kindly RSVP to Sarah Maxwell at smaxwell@iupui.edu with a head count of who may be attending so we can reserve the proper space size and enough refreshments.


    Sincerely,


    Benjamin Anthony, M.D.

    Assistant professor, Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery

    Director, Indiana University School of Medicine Voice Center

    EHDI Legislation Introduced: Contact Your Members of Congress Today to Co-sponsor This Important Legislation 

    Forwarded on behalf of ASHA Advocacy: ​

     

    On March 15, 2017 legislation (S. 652/H.R. 1539) was introduced in both the Senate and House to reauthorize the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Act (EHDI) for the next five (5) years.

     

    Sponsors of the bill are Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Tim Kaine (D-VA), and Representatives Brett Guthrie (R-KY) and Doris Matsui (D-CA). In 2010, Congress passed the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Act of 2010, which authorized these programs through 2015. In September 2015, legislation was introduced and passed in the House, however it was unable to come up for a vote in the Senate.  It is imperative that reauthorization occurs as soon as possible to ensure this successful program continues.

    Hello, This is Jennifer Freeman your Indiana ASHA State Advocate for Medicare Policy (StAMP).  I wanted to share the following PowerPoint from our last conference call because it explains about appropriate use of the billing treatment codes for cognitive treatment.


    Cognitive Code Training-1 (1).pptx


    The presentation was prepared by Lisa Milliken, the Texas StAMP.  The next StAMP call is Tuesday, February 7 and the topic is development/impact/transition to alternative payment models, the creation of bundled payment/episode of care, and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs).  


    Please let me know of any specific trends or difficulties your company is experiencing with Medicare.  I would be happy to bring our concerns before Sarah Warren, Director of Health Care Regulatory Advocacy with ASHA and the other StAMPs.

     

    Advocating for Indiana,

     

    Jennifer Freeman MA CCC-SLP
