The issue of how to provide enough and the right kind of intervention for persons with aphasia is one of the many challenges speech-language pathologists (SLPs) face in the new millennium. Beginning with the advent of managed care insurances and Medicare Cap of 1999, and continuing with the expanded impact of the Medicare Cap on hospital outpatient rehabilitation facilities throughout the country, many adults with acquired neurogenic communication disorders continue to be on the short end of an ever shortening stick.
This clinically oriented issue of Perspectives focuses on creative ways to meet the needs of persons with aphasia (PWA) in the context of shrinking healthcare resources (e.g., the Medicare Cap). Our authors write from both the impairment and participation perspectives and blend the best of both approaches, providing doable suggestions to clinicians who cope with the Medicare Cap and other insurance challenges as they try to provide ample service to PWA. Their articles provide ideas for both individual and group therapy settings.
