Think of us as insurance... for your license.

When was the last time you went down to the state capitol and made sure the legislature respected your right to practice? Guess what... we do that for you, and your membership helps pay for it.

The American Occupational Therapy Association continues to work with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on the issue of Outpatient Functional Data (G-codes) under Medicare Part B.

Help AOTA understand how you are using G-codes in practice so they can work with CMS to refine and improve the process by taking a one question survey, created by AOTA: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/XDCCYPW

Find AOTA resources on G-Codes here: http://www.aota.org/en/Advocacy-Policy/Federal-Reg-Affairs/Coding/G-Code.aspx

ArizOTA would like to thank you for your time and contribution with assisting AOTA in this G-Code Survey.
