At BioTech, we are committed to helping our patients receive excellent, personal, and affordable care. Although prosthetic and orthotic devices can significantly help improve functionality and comfort, we realize that they can be an expensive investment.
Take a minute to learn more about insurance coverage for prosthetic and orthotic devices from the BioTech Limb and Brace team.
Does My Insurance Cover That?
Depending on your health insurance provider, your pre-existing conditions, and a variety of other factors, coverage for these devices vary. Most insurance companies have policies that will cover some of your costs; however, devices that are used primarily for cosmetic appearance rather than for practical function are typically not covered.
Similarly, developed devices that require advanced technology may be more expensive and therefore may not be covered by your insurance company.
With any policy, there are often limitations on what is covered. Therefore, the best thing to do is to consult with both your personal prosthetist and your insurance company to determine what your insurance will cover and what you may have to pay for out-of-pocket.
How Do I Get My Coverage?
To get your device covered, you will have to file a claim with your insurance company. This often involves an extensive process that takes a good bit of time and paperwork.
At BioTech Limb and Brace, we will try our best to help you make that process as simple and stress-free as possible. We are here to help you get the treatment you need to recognize and achieve your possibilities.
