VP Reimbursement & Compliance, Ossur
David McGill is the President of the National Association for the Advancement of Orthotics and Prosthetics (NAAOP). He led NAAOP’s 2015 effort to raise awareness about proposed changes to Medicare policy that would have adversely affected all amputees; ultimately resulting in Medicare’s decision to refrain from implementing the proposed changes. David also spearheaded a 2015 effort that forced New York State to reverse a “one prosthesis per life” restriction used by private insurance companies to prevent amputees from receiving medically necessary prosthetic care.
He is currently VP of Reimbursement & Compliance at Össur Americas. A regular author and lecturer regarding reimbursement issues, he has obtained two of only four reimbursement codes granted by Medicare over the last decade for lower extremity prosthetics—creating access to microprocessor-controlled ankle-foot systems and powered prosthetic knees for all amputees in the U.S. An above-knee amputee himself, David has been interviewed by Psychology Today magazine, The Christian Science Monitor, CNN, BBC Radio and The Wall Street Journal regarding prosthetic issues.
