The American Orthotic & Prosthetic Association celebrates 100 years


The collective voice of orthotics and prosthetics and proud Scheck & Siress partner, The American Orthotic & Prosthetic Association (AOPA), is celebrating 100 years of service in 2017.

The AOPA’s roots date back to the devastation of the American Civil War and the growing need for orthotics and prosthetics. In the present day they have evolved into the leading advocate for resolving issues hindering the O&P community. Their goals revolve around finding the best outcome for O&P patients and to create a favorable business environment for their members.

AOPA is taking on some of the most troublesome problems the O&P community is facing. Collectively they’re developing initiatives and projects designed to find the best solutions for patients and businesses. Recent and ongoing initiative include:

  • Seeking legislative solutions through Congress with The Medicare O&P Improvement Act.
  • Ongoing research for the future of O&P through the “Prosthetics 2020” program.
  • Continued education and communication of O&P’s value proposition by sponsoring mobilitysaves.org.
  • Helping to securing fair and equitable reimbursement for patients through assistance at LCodeSearch.com.
