Plan now to attend by saving the date to your calendar.


Share your perspectives. Meet and talk with elected officials and federal staffers about the opportunities and challenges you face in your practice.

  • You don't have to be an experienced advocate to participate!
  • Just share your story and the stories of others in the orthopaedic community.
  • AAOE will provide you with key talking points and training. We'll help ensure your visit is successful!
  • Appointments with Congressional members and staff will be arranged for you.

Make a positive impact on the profession and your patients. Registration is free and open to anyone working in a musculoskeletal organization.

This year, we'll be advocating for:

  • Increased DXA reimbursements in a physician office;
  • Delaying Medicare's upcoming Appropriate Use Criteria Program;
  • Preserving the ability of providers to negotiate and contract with insurers; and,
  • Real time Medicare Advantage prior authorizations.*

*Issues are subject to change as the legislative and regulatory environment evolve.
