With increasing cuts in funding and increased productivity demands on therapists, many seating clinics are closing. However, seating clinics continue to be successful in many different environments servicing clients of different ages and diagnoses. To be successful, therapists and suppliers must work closely together and be educated in funding, proper documentation, and have appropriate relationships with manufacturers’ representatives.
This presentation will give insight to the various types of seating clinics and how to make them successful. The presenters will include an experienced team including a seating therapist, a supplier, and a manufacturers’ representative.

All aspects of a successful clinic will be discussed. These include the appropriate length of time for equipment evaluation; the importance of equipment delivery at the clinic where it was prescribed; the CPT codes that can be billed by the therapist for successful payment of services for the clinic; and the minimal amount of mobility equipment a clinic needs to have for successful evaluations.

Case studies and examples will be used to show how a well-run clinic functions and the problems that can occur with other provision methods.

This session is supported by a company with reported interest in the sale of Assistive Technology products. The content has been reviewed by ISS personnel and determined to be appropriate for continuing education purposes.
