on January 20, 2022
OPGA is excited to release our new resource for members, “Starting an Orthotics and Prosthetics Practice.” New provider enrollment for Medicare, Medicaid, or other insurance payers can be complicated. This guide outlines the steps that a business owner should take when applying to be a Medicare provider.
“The new ‘Starting an Orthotics and Prosthetics Practice’ guide will be incredibly beneficial to OPGA members, said Todd Eagen, president of OPGA. “Mergers, acquisitions, and closures are common in the industry, but we also see many new practices opening. OPGA has the resources you need to step through this process.”
The guide includes a checklist of licenses, permits, and applications needed, a guide to Medicare enrollment, and other important resources an orthotics and prosthetics practice needs. OPGA members can download this guide on the members-only portal.
If you need additional assistance with any of these steps, OPGA has resources to help you get through the process. With discounts through The van Halem Group, reimbursement assistance, government and regulatory assistance, and a discussion board on our members-only portal for you to ask questions to your peers, we will be able to find answers to your questions. Contact OPGA at 800-214-6742 or [email protected] with any questions.
