– 22 – AdvocacyOTA aligned with the efforts of the AAOS Board of Specialty Society Office of Government Relations to support orthopaedic issues. Issues supported by the AAOS BOS included: • Worked with Congress to protect patients from surprise medical bills for emergent procedures without instituting a federal benchmark rate. A solution containing an independent dispute resolution (IDR) process and other priorities was included in year-end legislation. • Secured the support of 77 members of Congress for our requested $35 million for the peer-reviewed orthopaedic research program in the FY 2021 Defense Appropriations legislation. The program received $30 million, consistent with past levels of funding. • Requested $11.5 million for the Mission Zero program, funding grants for military physicians and trauma teams to practice in civilian trauma centers. While the program has been successfully authorized by Congress, we haven’t yet secured funding as Congress focuses on addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ll continue to fight for funding for Mission Zero in 2021. • Advocated with federal regulators (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services) through meetings and written requests to distribute adequate personal protective equipment for frontline COVID-19 care teams and change the eligibility definitions for receipt of Provider Relief Funds during the pandemic which led to 1,760 orthopaedic practices across the country receiving $296,967,483 in grants by July 2020. • Advocated with federal regulators (i.e., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC]) to publish guidance on safety of surgical teams in the early stages of the pandemic. • Advocated with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and CDC to develop clear guidance on suspension of non-emergent surgeries and subsequent resumption of medically necessary time sensitive surgeries. • Advocated persistently with federal regulators through meetings and written comments on access to care and patient safety issues for acute trauma cases as a result of eliminating the Medicare Inpatient Only List for all 266 musculoskeletal procedures.Advocating for Orthopaedic Trauma Surgeons.
