A great Legislative win for the entire orthotics and prosthetics community!
The recent Continuing Resolution/Spending Bill that passed through US Congress to keep the government open also provided the means to accomplish one of the key components of the O&P Medicare Improvements Act, which AOPA, its lobbyists, its members, and MANY important friends in O&P have been fighting for several years!...
The legislation states:
The orthotist/prosthetist notes WILL be considered by CMS to be officially part of the patient’s medical record for purposes of medical necessity, and RAC and pre-payment audits!
SEC. 50402. ORTHOTIST’S AND PROSTHETIST’S CLINICAL NOTES AS PART OF THE PATIENT’S MEDICAL RECORD. Section 1834(h) of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1395m(h)) is amended by adding at the end the following new paragraph:
”(5) DOCUMENTATION CREATED BY ORTHOTISTS AND PROSTHETISTS.-For purposes of determining the reasonableness and medical necessity of orthotics and prosthetics, documentation created by an orthotist or prosthetist shall be considered part of the individual’s medical record to support documentation created by eligible professionals described in section 1848(k)(3)(B)."
There's always more work to do, but this is a great win for O&P!
