Mastering Medicare with Katie Brown

For SLP’s who focus on adult care in their private practices, one of the most important things to learn is Medicare. Many of our adult patients utilize it to pay for the care they need. 

But how do you set it up for your private practice? 

In this episode of Private Practice Success Stories, I sat down with one of my Start Your Private Practice students, Katie Brown, to talk about Medicare in the private practice setting. Katie runs her own practice for adult patients which has given her a lot of experience and knowledge on taking Medicare payments. 

Billing Medicare can be scary for SLP’s. We have all been there! Katie is making it easier than ever for SLP’s to get enrolled, learn how to bill properly, and document their services through her new program Mastering Medicare for SLP’s. 

Katie Brown, MA, CCC-SLP, CBIS is a speech-language pathologist and certified brain injury specialist practicing in Buffalo, NY. She owns a private practice called Neuro Speech Solutions which specializes in therapy for adults with neurogenic communication and cognitive disorders. Katie is passionate about providing meaningful, functional therapy to those with aphasia and cognitive impairments related to stroke and TBI.

Outside of her private practice, Katie is active in the SLP community. She is an advocate for person-centered care and creates digital materials aiming to help other medical SLPs feel more confident in providing personally relevant therapy. Katie is a mentor for the Start Your Private Practice Program and an SLP consultant for the aphasia app company, Tactus Therapy. She volunteers for several non-profits and provides a monthly workshop for brain injury survivors.


In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:


  • What is included in Katie’s Medicare program
  • What mistakes to watch out for when applying for Medicare
  • Why it’s okay if a claim gets denied and what to do if it does
  • How long the process of getting everything set up takes
  • Why Katie’s course will work for you even if you are already seeing Medicare clients
  • The cost of inaction in your business

We need more private practices out there that will accept Medicare, so I hope this episode has encouraged you to learn how to start mastering medicare. Katie is a phenomenal example of taking action. The more you delay figuring out Medicare, the more you and your patients will miss out. There’s no better time than now to get started!
