Be an OT Amplifier — Empowered by Knowledge. Supported by Policy.

Welcome to Amplify OT, where you get to access dynamic resources that you need to teach policy and advocacy to OT/OTA students.

Here's why teaching policy is challenging:

1

Many legal terms & processes to research and teach.

2

Understanding billing is complex & needs frequent touch points.

3

Policies are constantly changing & updating.

4

Guest lectures alone don’t offer the full picture.

5

Students don’t see the real-world value and the content can be dry…

Here's why policy and advocacy matter:

Students need to navigate difficult policy scenarios, patient advocacy, and be able to successfully pass their fieldworks.

Developing systems level thinking regarding policy and reimbursement creates strong OT advocates.

The Amplify OT Membership – Student Edition is used by over 450 students and 10 OT/OTA cohorts as their go-to resource for teaching policy, reimbursement, insurance, and advocacy. Ditch the dusty textbook and trade it for continuously updated resources that actually speak specifically to OT policies.

Here's what people are saying about the membership:

"The additional content definitely helped students to understand how reimbursement can impact their practice. …I noticed more students paying attention to the reimbursement structure and policies when considering their "ideal" position for a mock job interview. Several students became excited about advocacy and became heavily engaged in state and national level policy and advocacy as a result. One is planning a capstone in this area for 2024."

Why You Should Care About Policy

01

Medicare Policy Influence Everything

As we all know, what Medicare does is often adopted by other providers. Plus, if you work in geriatrics, it is one of the most common payer types. So, if we understand Medicare policy, we can better serve patients and ensure we are compliant with the law.

02

Policy Influences Your Pay

We can't get paid appropriately if we aren't billing correctly for our services. Additionally, if we don't accurately document our skill and services, we risk denials. Denials and underbilling lead to less play and fewer job opportunities. Further, if you don't know the policy, you could be losing revenue through unnecessary visit limits.

03

What Happens in DC Doesn't Stay in DC

Did you know that most Medicare policy starts as a piece of legislation in Congress? And that the legislation can sometimes take years before it impacts practice? Paying attention and engaging in advocacy early in the process allows you to effect change before it is too late.

04

A Bad Policy Can Erase Therapy

It sounds extreme to say that one bad policy could make therapy professions a non-viable career, but it's true. Without advocacy, therapy services could be left out of legislation, could lose licensure, or have reimbursement slashed. Continuous vigilance is needed and that's why we post monthly advocacy updates.

05

And So Much More

I could go on for hours about the importance of policy and advocacy. Understanding the rules and regulations that govern our profession is required by the Code of Ethics, allows us to explain our services to patients, and ensures we are compliant with laws.
