About

The Amplify Therapy Summit unites occupational therapy students, practitioners, faculty, and leaders to learn about and discuss policy and advocacy efforts impacting access to OT, jobs, and reimbursement and identify exciting opportunities for occupational therapy. Amplify OT hosts the event as a platform for meaningful conversation, policy solutions, and education on Medicare and reimbursement.

We know things could be better, but the question is…

What will you do about it?

Together, we can achieve new heights!

Topics & Questions

Join us to work together and find answers!

Note: Topics are not yet finalized. Topics are subject to change as speakers and sessions are scheduled.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify three different ways to advocate for occupational therapy. 
  • Describe the impact of reimbursement on occupational therapy service provision.
  • Identify two resources for further policy, billing, or advocacy education.

Coverage of OT

Access to care in the US is closely tied to reimbursement and coverage. In an ideal world, how should OT services be covered and reimbursed?

Staffing Mandates

We’ve seen minimum staffing requirements for nursing services. But what about therapy? Should OT be included, or does this risk devaluing our skilled services?

Unified Post-Acute Care Payment Model

Since 2014, CMS has been hard at work developing the Unified PAC Payment Model. How should OT be represented in this

Productivity

It’s a business basic, but one peek at social media can tell you it’s a major problem. At what point does it hinder patient care and support engaging in unethical or illegal activities? Is there a solution to be found?

Innovative Payment Models

Fee-for-service is fading away slowly but surely. Reimbursement models are becoming more complicated. How does OT adjust to meet clients' needs while remaining a viable profession?

Measuring OT’s Value

Section GG and the BIMS aren’t perfect. Yet, they remain the primary way we assess function and cognition in post-acute care. What should be changed, and how can OT adapt to demonstrate value using these measures?

The Amplify Therapy Summit’s target audience is occupational therapy practitioners and students, healthcare professionals, and individuals interested in learning about health policy or reimbursement. Session topics will predominately focus on adult rehab settings such as acute and post-acute care. 

VIP ticket holders will have until August 11th to complete courses and receive a certificate of completion for the summit. After that date, the courses will be separated into individual certificates. Each course will have a ‘quiz’ after the session asking for feedback. Completion of this quiz will indicate the course was completed. The quiz will be show below the video after the full video has been watched. 

Attendees must complete the final survey and quiz by August 11th  to receive the official summit certificate. A link to this survey will be emailed to all VIP members after the event.
