Support the Medicare Orthotics and Prosthetics Improvement Act

Ask your representatives to support the Medicare Orthotics and Prosthetics Improvement Act, which provides common sense solutions to reduce fraud, including the following provisions: 

  • require Medicare/Medicaid to reimburse only qualified providers meeting required licensure or accreditation standards according to BIPA 427;
  • recognize the prosthetist’s and orthotist’s clinical notes as part of the patient’s medical record;
  • distinguish the clinical activities of orthotists and prosthetists from those providing durable medical equipment and supplies;
  • clarify that “off-the- shelf orthotics” eligible for competitive bidding be limited to those devices that require minimal self-adjustment only by the patient and not another person in order to fit the patient.
