Orthotic and Prosthetic Program Updates

July 29, 2019

The Orthotic Program Regulations have been updated and important changes have been made regarding "Prescribing Provider Orders and Other Documentation Requirements". Now required is a Detailed Written Order. The Detailed Written Order also requires a prescriber attestation. The attestation requirements must be included with every Detailed Written Order. It is important that all staff read and understand these new requirements.

Prosthetic Providers are directed to review Prosthetic Provider Bulletin 11 detailing Detailed Written Order requirements for that program.
