Federal Legislative Update

One of the many advantages to being a member of ArizOTA and AOTA includes legislative advocacy at both the State and National Levels. ArizOTA and AOTA work to ensure that Occupational Therapy is represented and protected in the legislature.

In April of 2014, the ArizOTA President, the ArizOTA Legislative Committee Chair, and fellow Occupational Therapists (pictured below) visited Capitol Hill to advocate for Occupational Therapy on our behalf.

For up to date information regarding the federal issues AOTA is working on to promote and defend occupational therapy, or to send a message to Congress, visit the AOTA Legislative Action Center: http://capwiz.com/aota/home/

OTs Reporting G-Codes Under Medicare Part B: Quick Survey from AOTA

The American Occupational Therapy Association continues to work with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on the issue of Outpatient Functional Data (G-codes) under Medicare Part B.

Help AOTA understand how you are using G-codes in practice so they can work with CMS to refine and improve the process by taking a one question survey, created by AOTA: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/XDCCYPW

Find AOTA resources on G-Codes here: http://www.aota.org/en/Advocacy-Policy/Federal-Reg-Affairs/Coding/G-Code.aspx

ArizOTA would like to thank you for your time and contribution with assisting AOTA in this G-Code Survey.
