    The Roaring 2020s: Why We’re Entering Rehab Therapy’s Greatest Era

    High out-of-pocket costs. Inefficient care paths. Market Consolidation. Unfair payer and government policy. I could probably draw out this list for several paragraphs, but you get the idea—there’s a lot that we, as rehab therapists, are up against. And most of it is seemingly out of our control. If you pay attention to politics—and with the next election cycle already taking over national news headlines, it’s kind of hard not to—then you know that debate over healthcare …

    Becoming an OT Advocate: How to Shape Policy While Juggling a Busy Caseload

    The signing of Hawaii’s occupational therapy licensure law marked the end of a 50-year crusade to introduce state-level OT regulation in all 50 states. Fifty years! I admire all of the OT leaders who had the tenacity to see this aspirational—and incredibly lengthy—project through.

As value-based reimbursement models gain momentum in our country and our patients become more savvy customers, the value of your occupational therapy services may come into question. Proving your value may sound extremely daunting, but it doesn't have to be. You don’t need to speak to the value of the whole occupational therapy profession. You just need …
