Free Ask the Expert consultation for your coding, billing, and audit questions
AOPA’s coding, billing, and audit experts are available by phone and email to answer your questions about audits, denials, coding, and billing, as well as new policies that are implemented by regulators.
Build your network. Advance your career. Give back to the profession by volunteering to serve on an AOPA committee. Your participation provides a necessary level of support to AOPA by participating in the association’s governance. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to become involved! The Annual Call for Volunteers occurs each June.
Be an advocate for the profession and its patients. AOPA members come to Washington DC each spring for the AOPA Policy Forum to meet with their legislative representatives to do just this. Members are invited to bring a patient to help tell the O&P story and how changes are needed to improve patient care.
To help you build your advocacy skills and stay up-to-date on the latest ongoing policies and legislative efforts, we hold Advocacy in Action Webinars monthly.
