2016 has been marked by the most successful MSOTA Spring Conference to date; an enlightening trip to Chicago to AOTA State Association Presidents meeting in which we received the Creative Management Award for the success of our initiatives in 2015; presenting at the State Policy Forum on our advocacy efforts regarding ABA scope of practice; and attending many policy meetings on topics currently affecting our profession.

Among the issues discussed OT in telehealth/telemedicine was the most prominent topic, followed by the need for a licensure compact in which practitioners can practice along state lines. Another “hot topic” included the new OT CPT Evaluation Code changes recently published in July.
