About IPOPA

The Iowa Prosthetics and Orthotics Association (IPOPA) was formed in 2007 with the purpose of advocating for licensing and accreditation for O&P practitioners in Iowa and to provide information and resources for O&P patients. It is the goal of the IPOPA to create a standard of care for O&P practitioners and their clients in the state.

Prosthetic Parity Bill Signing

The association was instrumental in passing the Prosthetic Parity Bill in April of 2009. The bill, known as the Prosthetic Parity Act, requires insurers to provide meaningful coverage for prosthetic devices and care by creating a consistent standard for prosthetic benefits. This removes special caps and exemptions placed on prosthetic and orthopedic care that, in effect make these very basic services cost-prohibitive for many individuals. This bill was designed to help people with limb loss keep their jobs, take care of their families, and live healthy, active lives. The Iowa Prosthetics and Orthotics Association believe strongly and takes part in Continuing education in the fields of prosthetics, orthotics and pedorthotics.
