    WELCOME 2021 -  OKOTA has heard from members requesting advocacy efforts on behalf of school providers with overloaded caseloads;  OTA's facing -15% reimbursement rate cuts by OHCA; business owners staring at red tape and uncertain policy changes with managed care looming alongside Medicaid Expansion; CMS nationally reducing reimbursement for Medicare service providers; and students in need of all levels of fieldwork placements across the state due to COVID changes and closures.
    • In September 2020, the state medical licensure board updated the rules for occupational therapy license renewal and Telehealth practice. Read the new regulations for pre-audits of CEU's, telehealth CEUs required, and other details HERE

    Hello colleagues! We have recruited three new board members to help our association fulfill its mission. WELCOME to Ashley Hobson - Legislative Committee Chairperson;  Megan Atterbury - Development Committee Chairperson; and Cristi Carnahan - Awards Committee Chairperson.  You can find their emails at our CONTACT  page on the menu bar above. Please email us with suggestions for 2021 advocacy goals, next year's conference venue or speaker sessions, and to volunteer for committees either short-term or for the full year. We appreciate your active membership!
    DID YOU KNOW?
    OKOTA has been advocating for you & for our profession:

    • at the medical board - to clarify the new rules about license renewal
    • at Oklahoma Health Care Authority - about a proposed rate cut for OTA's
    • at the state Capitol - with legislation that affects our clients & our jobs
    • and working with AOTA on national issues of reimbursement!
    YOUR MEMBERSHIP MAKES ALL THIS POSSIBLE!

    Registered members are welcome to join us September 17, Thursday evening, for the annual report and executive board meeting.

    The Oklahoma Occupational Therapy Association works for YOU, all year long. Our all-volunteer board members actively monitor, evaluate & plan how best to support the needs of providers and students and clients across our state. 

    We recently moved website platforms, so content will be updated as time permits for our volunteer IT team - so while we organize and improve communication of resources - OKOTA wants to hear from you:

    •  How has the pandemic situation impacted YOU? (job loss, wages cut, childcare or family caregiver roles changing, anxiety& stress increased?)
    •  Have you been told to do job tasks outside your scope of practice OR provide teletherapy in less than appropriate conditions?
    •  Are you looking for resources on Family Medical Leave Act or Short-Term Disability Insurance? Do you want to find additional work/wages for the next 4-6 weeks someplace close to home? 
    •  Being a caregiver & helping others adapt to crises = Occupational Therapy  **Though, at times, we need to focus on self-care to prevent burnout or illness...

    OKOTA promotes best practice, in diverse situations, supporting the needs of occupational therapy providers who do life-changing work for our communities. So LET'S SHARE RESOURCES here & COLLABORATE to problem-solve the COVID19 situations today and for the future.

    Follow "Oklahoma Occupational Therapy Association" on Facebook & Instagram - share on Twitter or Tik Tok - then check out these amazing resources for our members (free to the public at this time!)
