AOPA’s reimbursement specialists can answer all your questions related to coding, reimbursement and compliance via telephone or email. They can also assist with HIPAA, and navigating the audit and appeals process. Please call (571) 431-0843 with your member ID or identifying information handy to speak with the experts.
Legislative and Regulatory advocacy on your behalf
AOPA staff and lobbying team bring your voice to Washington to fight for equitable treatment for O&P. Since the 2011 “Dear Physician” Letter, AOPA’s number one priority has been challenging RAC and CERT audits by overly aggressive CMS contractors. After exhausting all other possibilities, in May of 2013, AOPA filed suit against CMS. Updates on the litigation can be found here.
