Since the opening of the Gallaudet University Hearing and Speech Center (GUHSC) in the Sorenson Language and Communication Center in 2008, the intent is to offer audiological and related services to the larger D.C. community. To do that, GUHSC is now accepting third party insurance coverage to mantain the affordable services for patients. Once GUHSC began accepting Medicaid, Medicare, and other third party insurance coverage it was required to comply with regulatory mandates and guidelines that specify that all patients provide third party insurance information, if available.
GUHSC started to accept third-party insurance information on the 31st of May 2011.
