Grateful to have met you at the MSP airport tonight. I'm not sure why I was drawn to you and needed to hear your story, but I am so glad I did. Thank you for all you do!

Seeing and hearing about others struggling with similar issues live life to its fullest is reassuring for a family/ person that has just gone threw a life altering accident becoming a double above kne...e amputee. Its hard some times to see a positive light to all this when your once so great life is upside down. Wiggle your toes keeps a smile on my face :) See More

My husband was never truly taught to walk with his prosthesis. He has difficulty walking with it because of the weight gain from not walking with it. He uses a walker in the house but for longer time ...uses a wheelchair. He is very disgusted and depressed with himself because we cannot do things we used to do. He also is on dialysis three days a week. See More

*Legislative Update*

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!
