Leaders in O & P Policy Efforts


Jim Kaiser, CP, LP attended a “send off” event Dec 13 for Rep. Tammy Duckworth as she heads to DC in January.

Key issues facing the field of O/P are the proposed competitive bidding for custom prosthetics and orthotics and the current CMS pre-payment audits facing O/P providers. Both of these issues will negatively impact the delivery of O/P care for patients. Rep. Duckworth is working with AAOP and AOPA and the O/P Alliance to ensure that these issues are addressed on behalf of quality patient care not just dollars and cents as we approach the fiscal cliff.
