Occupational Therapy Adult Rehab Reimbursement and Medicare Course

Educating the future of the profession on Medicare policy, reimbursement, and advocacy is challenging and vital.

 However, it is difficult to ensure information is accurate and up to date.

Unlike many other professional topics, health policy is constantly changing and evolving. So, textbooks go out-of-date overnight, leaving programs, students, and practitioners searching for resources that are difficult to find.

To solve this problem, I created the OT Adult Rehab Reimbursement Course. Think of this course like a continuously updated textbook that students won’t mind using — they may even enjoy it! 😉

With this course, you’re getting policy knowledge tailored to occupational therapy practitioners. So, no more crossing our fingers and hoping information from a general health policy book also applies to OT.
This saves practitioners and programs hours of research because I’ve already done the work of reading the policy and translating it for OT in a way that makes sense to clinicians and students. Each video has a designated handout with links to CMS, AOTA, and Amplify OT resources.
The entire course is on-demand videos that students and faculty can access from any device that has access to the internet. This eliminates any challenges trying to find a magic hour where the schedules align.

Group Set-Up

Each program would have its own designated page. The custom page allows for updates specific to your program, easy access to the course, and a designated contact form for students to submit questions to me.
Additionally, faculty leaders have the ability to download their student’s data, including course progress and quiz results.

Access:

Your program will have access to this course one year from the activation date. The activation date will be the same date that student accounts are activated on Amplify OT. To activate their accounts, I will need their full name and email address in addition to confirmation of payment processing. Programs can request a specific activation date, and I will do my best to accommodate the request assuming the above criteria are met.

Pricing:

Not every cohort and school budget is the same. That is why we have implemented pricing tbased on cohort size. 

Pricing is based on the total number of enrolled students. For example, if a program has two cohorts of 40 students each who all need to enroll at the same time, the program would select the 50-100 category.

What’s included:

You’re busy, and keeping track of all this information can be challenging. Let’s partner together to help the next generation of occupational therapy practitioners enter the field with the policy knowledge they need!
