A Letter From the President, Adam Miller: January 2023
Orthotics & Prosthetics
on January 18, 2023
Here we are in 2023 already. I hope you and your family’s holidays were great and you were able to squeeze in some much-deserved relaxation this time of year. As we look ahead to the new year, I wanted to share a few of my top priorities for OPGA this year.
First, as you may know, despite the hard work and best efforts by our profession’s stakeholders, The Medicare Orthotics and Prosthetic Patient-Centered Care Act was unfortunately not included in 2022’s year end omnibus bill. OPGA, along with our advocacy partners such as NAAOP and AOPA, will remain committed to work together to get this important piece of legislation enacted into law. We will continue to provide updates along the way as developments arise.
Next, we are currently hard at work to bring even more value to your OPGA membership. Partnering with VGM Education, you will soon be hearing about some exciting enhancements to our educational offering available only to OPGA members. Stay tuned for more details on that.
Additionally, another of 2023’s top focuses will be to continue to expand our offerings from a vendor partner standpoint. While we will continue to work with some of the most respected vendor partners in the profession to provide you with discounted pricing, we are actively pursuing new and exciting partnerships that are designed to provide your business with additional revenue streams. In a time when reimbursement rates continue to drop and your patients expect you to provide new and innovative products and services, OPGA is working hard to help you expand those opportunities.
Finally, in the next couple months, we are looking forward to seeing many of you at various national and regional events, including one of our profession's flag ship events at the 49th Academy Annual Meeting in Nashville.
As always, on behalf of the entire OPGA team, we thank you for all you do for your patients, for our profession, and for your continued support of OPGA. We are grateful to be a part of what you do.
