Funding Augmentative Communication Devices: A Tutorial for a Pain-free Report Writing Experience

Description

SLPs in all work environments across the state of Alabama will come face-to-face with non-verbal communicators who either utilize augmentative/alternative communication devices (ACDs) or are in need of an ACD. SLPs who work with current device users may need to submit requests for repair to payer sources, but without the correct information, they cannot obtain the needed repair. Most SLPs are unfamiliar with the evaluation requirements and process for obtaining a funded ACD. This webinar will begin with a broad look at all available payer sources, requirements for qualified evaluators, and determining medical necessity. Next, in-depth instruction on specific requirements for obtaining funding through the Alabama Medicaid Agency for an augmentative communication device will be provided, including addressing each report section. During this, ACDs as defined by Alabama Medicaid, along with specific Medicaid requirements and forms will be explained and reviewed. Finally, compliance and liability issues, avoiding fraud, and a discussion of the leading causes of claims errors and denials will be addressed.
