TESTIMONIALS

I wouldn’t be able to work with confidence without FSOMA’s representation as our professional association.  You help us to have and keep legitimacy, and to keep others from cutting us off at the knees.  FSOMA keeps me informed about all issues related to our profession.

I just received my new license for 2022 in the mail and I was acutely aware of all you do for me, for acupuncture and for our State.
So this is just a simple thank you that probably doesn’t cover a fraction of the work you do, or the time you spend, or the thankless moments you spend worrying about the future of Acupuncture in Florida and the USA.
I am so grateful for every one of you. When the day comes that I am not the sole builder of my vision for corner acupuncture, I will also lend my time and love to our beautiful practice of medicine through FSOMA.
I will continue to sing your praises to all in our field, I will continue to adore our FSOMA conference and I will always hold you in the greatest esteem.
From the bottom of my heart,
Dr. Kathy Thomas

CMS Form 1490S – What you need to knowFact checking
FSOMA is aware of social media messaging that describes acupuncturists completing and providing a CMS Patient's Request for Medical Payment (Form 1490S) for patients who receive acupuncture services.   The Associations Board has asked the Florida Health Care Law Firm to provide guidance and feedback on the question of acupuncturists accepting and treating patients insured under original Medicare and the appropriateness of using CMS Form 1490S. 
The question presented to the attorneys is whether an acupuncturist may provide original Medicare patients with a CMS Form 1490S and a superbill for the purpose of allowing those patients to submit the Form 1490S directly to Medicare for acupuncture service fee reimbursements.
