    Hello OTs!

    I am currently a OT student attending IUSB. I graduate in December and for my level IIA project, I am doing some research on new payer sources for the pediatric outpatient clinic and I wanted to gather some tips on applying to become a First Steps and Medicare (so they can keep some of their longtime patients after they age out of Medicaid coverage) provider. Most of the patients the clinic is serving now are on Medicaid. They are located in Northern IN. 

    What was the process like? How long did it take? Any and ALL tips would be great. I want to try and prepare my fieldwork supervisor before she starts the process. 

    I also welcome any feedback about the experience. 

    Thank you in advance!
