The bill, called the Medicare Part B Improvement Act of 2017 (H.R. 3178), is a collection of six smaller measures aimed at improving Medicare Part B programs and includes a section entitled “Orthotist’s and Prosthetist’s Clinical Notes as Part of the Patient’s Medical Record.” The measure would include clinical notes from orthotists and prosthetists, regarding the necessity of O&P devices, as part of a patient’s medical record.
