Hearing aids

Marla Posted Thu 10th of November, 2016 12:11:00 PM
Do you need a referral for a audiogram if a patient has a commercial insurance plan or can they just call and ask to have a hearing test and then we bill their insurance under the audiologist name?

Typically, a physician order is required prior to the provision of audiology services. If the patient undergoes a hearing test by an audiologist without the physician order, the tests are not covered, even if the audiologist discovers a pathologic condition. However, It is suggested to check with the particular insurance plan too. Thank you.
