NOTA NEEDS YOUR HELP!

Share Stories on Patient/Provider Experience with UHCCP Prior-Authorization Process


We need personal stories about the prior authorization process with UHC Community Plan (UHCCP). We are looking for the impact that the delay has had on the client and therapist/clinic. Our goal is to collect stories from across the state to show that this is typical and widespread. Please submit your stories by completing this short survey

If you have further questions or concerns, please contact Melissa Kimmerling, NOTA’s Vice President of Policy & Advocacy at [email protected] or NOTA’s President, Janel Meis, at [email protected].

 

Occupational Therapy Fellowship Outcomes Research

You are invited to participate in a research study about outcomes of occupational therapy fellowship programs. This study will review the professional outcomes of occupational therapy doctoral or master prepared practitioners who have and have not completed an occupational therapy fellowship. Factors compared will include job satisfaction, professional development, mentorship and transition into the workforce. Understanding the outcomes of an occupational therapy fellowship program will provide benefits for students, employers, and the field of occupational therapy. This knowledge of fellowship outcomes will help students to better understand their options for education and the outcomes of completing a fellowship program.  Click here for more information and to participate in the study.
