Make the Most of National Audiology Awareness Month

Tomorrow begins National Audiology Awareness Month on October 1st, a perfect segue from the September introduction of the Medicare Audiologist Access and Services Act (MAASA) (S. 2446) in the U.S. Senate! S. 2446, strongly endorsed by members of ADA, AAA, ASHA, and HLAA, is championed by Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), along with Senators Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Roger Wicker (R-MS). The bill is identical to companion legislation (H.R. 4056), introduced by Representative Tom Rice (R-SC) and Representative Matt Cartwright (D-PA) on July 25th in the U.S. House of Representatives.
