AOPA Updates its Joint Statement on Physical Characteristics of Orthopedic Shoe Inserts

In 2013, AOPA, in conjunction with the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) and the Pedorthic Footcare Association (PFA), developed a joint statement on the interpretation of HCPCS codes L3000, L3010, L3020, and L3030.  The joint statement was presented to AOPA leadership at the time and was approved for publication.  On May 13, 2016 a follow up meeting of the three organizations was held and a slight revision to the joint statement was proposed with the understanding that the leadership of the three organizations would have the opportunity to review and approve the revised document.  The revised statement has been reviewed and approved by AOPA leadership.
