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. Through membership, NOTA has hired a political lobbyist and presented it’s first bill in the 2020 legislative session, LB 956.

A Survey of Incivility in the Occupational Therapy Workplace

You are invited to participate in an anonymous survey about your last six months of employment as an OT practitioner. The survey explores workplace culture (civility, incivility and resilience). It is being conducted by occupational therapy graduate students at San José State University. We think attaining the aforementioned information will be valuable to our profession. The survey takes ~5-minutes. All responses are so appreciated!

The following link will allow you to access the survey: https://sjsu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3sonH01KyQM8LuB

If you have any questions about this survey, or experience difficulty accessing or completing it, please contact our faculty advisor, Deborah Bolding at [email protected].

Thank you for all that you do, and we hope to receive your important feedback.

Sincerely,
Kate Poisson OTS, Cameron McCallister OTS, David M. Pufki OTS, Angelica Ramirez OTS, Claire Rickly OTS, Victoria Scattini OTS, & Deborah Bolding PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA
