On-Demand OT Medicare and Reimbursement Course
Educating the future of the profession is hard…
Let’s make it easier!
Does talking about Medicare and billing give you some chills? 🥶
It can be hard enough to understand yourself let alone put it into a way that students are going to understand.
Educating the future of the profession on healthcare policy, reimbursement, and advocacy is challenging and vital!
Unlike many other professional topics, health policy is constantly changing and evolving.
Policy textbooks go out-of-date overnight, leaving programs, students, and practitioners searching for up-to-date resources that are difficult to find and understand.
The OT Medicare and Adult Rehab Reimbursement Course
Think of this course like a continuously updated textbook that is engaging and fits in your pocket!
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.
It’s okay if Medicare isn’t really your thing. It’s my thing 😉 and it takes a village to prepare these OT and OTA students for the realities of clinical practice.
Understanding reimbursement just takes so much time. Won't they learn it in fieldwork?
If you’re thinking this, you’re not alone. I heard it as a student and so have 1000s of others. But here’s the problem…
If no one taught those practitioners how their services are paid for, how will they teach their students?
Let’s break the cycle and bust the myth that a fieldwork supervisor will always provide accurate reimbursement information and that our jobs will teach us (they don’t).
We can’t risk betting the future of our profession on the knowledge of supervisors and company training.
With this Amplify OT course, you and your program can save hours of research! I’ve already done the work of reading the policy, translating it for OT, putting it into videos, AND including all of my sources and information in comprehensive downloadable handouts.
With this program, you and your students gain access to 23 lessons complete with handouts and resources from CMS, AOTA, and Amplify OT. (hint: this means no more searching Google for hours to find some policy manual you found and lost last week)
23 On-Demand Lessons to Maximize Learning on Your Schedule
The full course includes 5 modules which are broken down into easy-to-understand lessons. Each on-demand video is about 6-20 minutes in length, depending on the topic. There are approximately 5 hours of video in the course (not including bonus webinars).

What Students Learn
What occupational therapy faculty are saying…
“Clarice is incredibly knowledgeable about reimbursement for OT services and stays current with any changes that occur. Her course is a valuable addition to my current curriculum.”
Professor of Occupational TherapyCox College - Springfield, MO
Each program has its own designated private group! The private group allows for updates specific to your program, easy access to the course, and a great way to facilitate conversations around assignments related to the course.
These groups are also part of the Student Corner which allows OT and OTA students to network and chat with each other!
Faculty need support too! Once enrolled, you’ll be added to our Faculty Corner. This is a great place to network, discuss challenges, and get ideas for assignments related to the course.
Access to a Community
The OT Medicare and Adult Rehab Reimbursement Course is built into the Amplify OT Membership. This means that students gain access to a community of students, practitioners, and leaders in our field!
They can attend any of the office hours and specialty meet-ups just like any other member. They also have access to me, Clarice Grote, to ask questions. I’m here to support you and your students!
One Year Access
Your program will have access to this course one year from the activation date.
Why one year? Because this provides the opportunity for students to use the material in multiple classes AND on fieldwork or into their first job.
Investment in the Future of Our Profession
Not every cohort and school budget is the same. That is why we have implemented pricing based 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.
Two faculty subscriptions are included with the program.
