The Legislative Committee is very pleased to let you know that the Board of Occupational Therapy Practice has decided to go to a 2-year renewal cycle. The fee for the renewal cycle should be just about twice the annual amount. There will be no additional cost for going to a two-year cycle.
We appreciate your input and support on this issue. There has been a lot of confusion about the fee level, so MOTA has collaborated with our members, the Board of Occupational Therapy Practice, and our legislative supporters; and we have successfully resolved the licensure and fee issue.
We will be hearing from the Board about the specifics of implementing the two-year cycle. It will take a little time to implement, but occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants will be moving towards a 2-year cycle, just as with other health professionals in the State of Maryland.
We would like to thank all of those supporters who helped work on this issue. We would like to extend a special thanks to Delegate Bonnie Cullison (District 19 – Montgomery County) and Senator Shirley Nathan-Pulliam (District 44 – Baltimore City and County) for their support on the licensure issue and for occupational therapy practice issues in general.
That being said, there is no need for our virtual Lobby Night as the bill we were supporting in regards to this issue has been withdrawn. If you have any questions, please contact me at mailto:email@example.com
