AOPA policy forum meets with congressional representatives

Orthotic and prosthetic stakeholders met March 8 with members of Congress in Washington, DC, to discuss improving patient care and advancing other legislative objectives.

Ninety-six patients and American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association members encouraged lawmakers in 500 appointments to support the 7 remaining provisions of the Medicare O&P Improvement Act. The clinical notes provision of the act had been approved earlier this year. Attendees also requested support for additional funding for O&P research and education, expressed the importance of veterans’ choice, and took the opportunity to share other issues facing their patients and their businesses.
