Yesterday, the House introduced the Medicare O&P Patient-Centered Care Act (HR 1990). This bipartisan legislation would improve access to, and quality of, orthotic and prosthetic care while simultaneously combating fraud and abuse. The bill is identical to legislation introduced in the House and Senate last year. Thank you for your help getting this vital legislation re-introduced.
To move this legislation forward, we need to garner as much support as possible for it. Please write to your Representative and urge them to support this important legislation – simply enter your information on the platform, personalize the letter as you see fit – it’s important to tell YOUR story – and click send. The process will take you just a few minutes; however, educating Congress on the issues surrounding the O&P profession is vital to businesses and more importantly patients – if we don’t advocate for our needs and the needs of patients, no one will.
If you have any questions, contact Justin Beland, AOPA Director of Government Affairs, at jbeland@AOPAnet.org.
Thank you for your efforts!
