Congress Eyes Medicare Coverage for Aural Rehabilitation, Hearing Aids

ASHA President John Bernthal compares Foley to the legendary Claude Pepper, a Florida legislator who advocated for seniors and fought to expand Medicare to protect people with chronic illness and disabilities from staggering health care costs.Not since Pepper's time, Bernthal says, "has there been a serious discussion on the need for Medicare to cover necessary services for hearing loss."


Report on Newborn Screening Draws Criticism

"It should come as no surprise that the same task force which, until recently, was reluctant to recommend mammography screenings for women should approach newborn hearing screening in so conservative a manner," said ASHA President John E. Bernthal. In developing its report, the panel ignored the recommendations in support of early hearing detection and intervention programs by the National Institutes of Health, the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.The panel overlooked important non-medical research, Bernthal said, noting that the panel's conclusions "are inconsistent with good clinical practices and may be misinterpreted by consumers, insurers, legislators, and employers." Although the panel acknowledged the benefits of newborn hearing screening in the "earlier identification and treatment of infants with hearing loss," the group concluded that "evidence is insufficient to recommend for or against routine screening of newborns for hearing loss during the postpartum hospitalization."The recommendations also questioned the effectiveness of early hearing intervention in improving language outcomes.The statement noted "significant methodological flaws" in the research and the lack of "prospective, controlled studies that directly examine" whether screening and related intervention aid speech, language, or educational development. Although ASHA supports additional research on newborn hearing screening, ethical considerations would prevent studies such as randomized controlled trials."The level of evidence the task force is seeking is stringent, and leads one to question whether randomized studies on American children with hearing loss is ethically appropriate," Bernthal said.


9,000 Strong Join the Odyssey in New Orleans

ASHA President John Bernthal, recognizing the changed spirit among members, based his presidential address at the Convention ' s Opening Session on the " unsung heroes " among us. New Heroes Bernthal noted how " The events of September 11 tragically demonstrated our vulnerability to terrorism on our own soil.But, ironically, these events also created a heightened sense of unity and a newfound patriotism.And they made us redefine our old concepts of heroism." Our new hero, he went on to say, is far from Hollywood ' s old larger-than-life figure." The last two months have taught us that real heroes are ordinary people.They are police officers, fire fighters, office workers, and day care workers who, in the course of doing their jobs, became heroes." And they are the ASHA members that Bernthal pointed out â€" Air Force Maj." ASHA is enriched by all of its unsung heroes, " Bernthal concluded.
