 Telehealth Reimbursement & Covid 19 Management Resources

Greetings Nebraska OT Practitioners,


In our board meeting April 7, 2020, the NOTA board approved sending the attached resource to all OTs in Nebraska, rather than just NOTA members. We have collected information on payer sources for telehealth and have taken that information and placed it into a live Google Sheet. This document will be updated as any additional information presents itself. You can view the document via this link, however not edit the document. If you have additional information that you would like added, please email Melissa Kimmerling at [email protected].

In addition, NOTA has collated telehealth resources during COVID-19 which is available on this live document: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HnxHBvvjsE782Gb7RUtN3UTcJE8I_L-WOdCpnPLfW7o/edit?usp=sharing

AOTA is also offering free CEUs on COVID-19 management to members and non-members during this crisis: https://www.aota.org/Conference-Events/Coronavirus-COVID19.aspx

Special thanks goes to Candice Mullendore from Pediatric Therapy Center and Mary Walsh-Sterup from Central Nebraska Rehabilitation Services for sharing their initial documents with the organization.

If you are a member of NOTA, you receive monthly emails, quarterly newsletters, and periodic policy and advocacy updates via email. In addition, you receive discounted access to annual conference, CEU events, and more.
