SCOTA Legislative efforts paid off! Occupational Therapy can now continue to provide therapy via telehealth under Medicaid following the national emergency order. We need your donation! We can only continue legislative efforts with your support. We are currently working on practitioner concerns related to Medicaid, BabyNet, MCO, and private insurance.


The SC statehouse will soon consider a bill to have SC join the OT Compact. This is an important time for SCOTA to make our voices heard! Support our efforts to hire a lobbyist and influence this important legislation!

SCOTA continuously advocates for the practice of occupational therapy in the state of South Carolina. Protecting our profession is paramount. Please consider helping SCOTA fund these advocacy efforts by making a donation today!


SCOTA has continued to work closely with APTA-SC and SCSHA since 2022.  This collaborative effort is benefiting clinicians and the patients we serve.  One significant area of focus has been collaborating with Select Health.  We are aware therapists have received information individually, however, per our request, Select Health has provided  the following official statement to share with all practitioners.  

On January 1, 2024 Select Health launched a new value based contracting program available to our network therapy providers. This new program is aimed at improving quality outcomes for South Carolina children. To be eligible for participation, providers must be open to accepting new foster care children and must be currently providing services to at least 20 Select Health members. Qualifying providers are eligible for an incentive payment annually based on achieving set quality measures. To learn more about the program and to see if your practice is eligible, please contact Ruth Sisson for more details.”
