Welcome to AOPAvotes, which provides you the opportunity to quickly and effectively communicate with your legislators on issues of critical importance to you and your patients.
AOPAvotes played a key role communicating the harmful effects of the proposed Local Coverage Determination on Lower Limb Prosthetics to Congress this past year. AOPAvotes and many other efforts caused the DME MACs to pull back the proposal and convene a workgroup to consider a reworked LCD.
This website will also track both federal and state issues involving RAC audits, off-the-shelf competitive bidding, essential benefits, and other issues affecting you and the O&P profession. Your efforts to raise awareness of the profession and advocate for policies that impact the future of the O&P field and our patients are critical to the success of our profession.James H.
