MassHealth and New York Medicaid

MassHealth and New York Medicaid already have SGD coverage guidelines that require SLP reports to be submitted by “experienced” SLPs.  The NY coverage guidelines say “a licensed [SLP] experienced in AAC service delivery has made the recommendation for the device ….” [NY Medicaid SGD coverage guideline, 1(f) effective 8/1/2019]  Neither program currently has any criteria further defining who is “experienced” from who isn’t.
