Healthcare Legislation and Regulation
NAAOP's focus is the O&P patient. Our members advocate for better evidence, better education of practitioners, greater and better technology for the O&P consumer, and greater access to care. NAAOP defines these goals as critical for O&P comprehensive patient care and presents them as such to policy makers, which include federal and state elected officials. Health care policy development is complex and dynamic. NAAOP's presence in this process is both legislative and regulatory. At each point in the health care policy development process, active involvement from the O&P profession is vital. Your professional perspective illustrates what works and what is in the best interest of the O&P patient. This website has been design to provide the resources for you to become informed, involved, and to contact us.
