State of O&P

The O&P industry is on a growth trajectory. Mark Higley has put together a resource to show the state of orthotics & prosthetics in 2022 and beyond.

“Why, especially in this most trying of times financially, belong to OPGA? As a facility owner, this is a question I faced when Medicare audits became a grim reality and every aspect of my practice had to be examined. In my efforts to address all of the time, monetary and professional demands we faced, I turned to all of our professional non-profit organizations. I also sought advice from OPGA. It was ultimately OPGA who provided the advice, expertise and know how to best help me face the serious challenges we all are facing in today’s healthcare climate. Perhaps this is because as a for profit company they in turn are dependent upon all of us for their own corporate success. Regardless, my association with OPGA increased ever more as I understood and took further advantage of what they have to offer my practice. The answer to my opening question is simple. The ROI in membership in OPGA is simply too great not to belong.” John Tyo - OPGA
