SPOTLIGHT ON FITNESS FOR HEALTH
Fitness for Health offers occupational and physical therapy at their cutting-edge facility in Rockville Maryland and they have been using Floreo with their clients for over 2 years. Founder Marc Sickel recently shared more on Fitness for Health's history. Inspired by his own childhood experiences, Marc founded Fitness for Health 38 years ago to help children, young adults, and adults who "struggle with similar or other challenges" that he faced. Marc believes that it is "so important that kids learn and have the tools that they need to make good friends, and this is where Floreo comes in!"

Exciting opportunity for educators
FLOREO IMMERSIVE LEARNING PROGRAM
We are thrilled to announce the Floreo Immersive Learning Program, a unique opportunity for schools to bring Floreo to neurodiverse students.
In collaboration with Meta, the program is for neurodiverse students ages 13 and above and includes free Meta Quest 2 headsets for schools. In addition, we are providing a Floreo Classroom Bundle for the low setup cost of only $500 through the 2023/2024 school year for participating schools. And we’re so excited that 30+ school districts have already taken advantage of this program.
Please share with your favorite educators and schools, including in-school service providers. We are so excited to help get more technology into the hands of very deserving schools. There is a short application process and schools interested in learning more can visit the link below.

NEW CPT III CODE FOR CLINICS IS LIVE
Last summer, Floreo sponsored the application for a new CPT III Code that went into effect January 1, 2023. Code 0770T is an add-on code that represents the practice expense for the software used for the VR technology and may be reported for each session for which VR technology is used. VR technology is incorporated into the base therapy session and is used to enhance the training or teaching of a skill upon which the therapy is focused.
If you are interested in incorporating this CPT III code into your practice's billing procedure, please let us know. We have some tips for outreach to your payers that may be helpful for you.
