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.

Governor Henry McMaster signed House Bill 3599 into law. This bill allows South Carolina OT practitioners to participate in the OT Compact. The OT Compact is a joint initiative of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) and the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT). Thank you again to Representative Brandon Newton for introducing this bill. Thank you SCOTA members for supporting this initiative!
