MSOPP is a non-profit organization designed to excel the professional and ethical standards of orthotic, prosthetic, and pedorthic practitioners in the state of MN. We achieve these standards by communicating current trends of practice and addressing procedural issues that may compromise patient care in any way. We are currently in the process of passing an insurance fairness bill and a licensure bill to ensure our patients receive the best care possible.

The MN Orthotics, Prosthetics, & Pedorthic Licensure bill was signed into law by Governor Dayton! The effective date is January 1, 2018. Please see below for the next steps.

We thank you all for your continued support and grassroots efforts!
