The prospect of a Medicare competitive bidding program for orthotic services
is still an unfortunate possibility despite the Senate’s failure to act on a
prescription drug bill before its August recess. AOPA will be working
diligently during August to educate senators on the perils of competitive
bidding, but we need your help.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced in the July
26 Federal Register that it will finally begin holding negotiated rulemaking
meetings concerning the Benefits Improvement and Protection Act (BIPA) of
2000. These meetings will give AOPA and other chosen parties the opportunity
to have a say in how the BIPA regulations are written.

If you are like many orthotists, you may have experience fitting one
company’s product, but not others. That’s why the AOPA National Assembly
workgroup has organized an orthotic symposium, titled Orthotic Knee Joint
Component Advancements. In one afternoon, you will learn the latest in
lower-limb technology.
