AOPA Benefits

AOPA provides just what you have been looking for. Join today for access to all AOPA member benefits:

Unlimited access to on-staff reimbursement experts

AOPA’s reimbursement specialists can answer all your questions related to coding, reimbursement and compliance via telephone or email. They can also assist with HIPAA, and navigating the audit and appeals process. Please call (571) 431-0876 with your member ID or identifying information handy to speak with the experts.

Legislative and Regulatory advocacy on your behalf

AOPA staff and lobbying team bring your voice to Washington to fight for equitable treatment for O&P. Since the 2011 “Dear Physician” Letter, AOPA’s number one priority has been challenging RAC and CERT audits by overly aggressive CMS contractors. AOPA will fight against competitive bidding attempts, and any other Medicare proposals that threaten patient care and cause unnecessary burdens on providers.

Member savings on all AOPA Education

AOPA’s authoritative seminars and other educational opportunities enable O&P professionals to learn from the AOPA experts in an interactive setting. AOPA members save significantly on registration fees to the Annual Assembly, the monthly webinars, and the quarterly Coding & Billing Techniques Seminar. More information can be found on our Education page.

Co-OP Reimbursement Resource

As an online reimbursement, coding and policy resource, this site includes a collection of detailed information with links to supporting documentation for the topics most important to AOPA Members. Like a Wikipedia of all things O&P, the Co-OP incorporates a crowdsourcing component, which is vetted by AOPA staff, to garner the vast knowledge and experience of our membership body.

Save on credit card processing

AOPA has partnered with Bank of America to bring credit card processing rates as low as 1.9% to AOPA members. Many members are paying more than 2.5% and if you’re handling $500,000 a year in credit card transactions, the 0.6% savings is like getting a 200% return on your membership dues investment.
