Insurance Companies and Custom Orthotics
Are you in the market for custom orthotics? You’d be surprised to know that most insurance plans will cover the costs of orthotic shoes and custom orthotics, so long as they are being employed to treat a health condition. Tamir Kfir understands the fine print and wants to help you figure out whether or not you are entitled to a pair of custom orthotics.
If you are planning to contact your insurance company regarding the purchase of a pair of orthotic shoes and custom orthotics, expect them to want to assess you using a standard model. In their assessment, they will look at your posture, the structure, alignment, strength, and range of motion of your legs and feet, any symptoms and conditions related to your feet, legs, and other related areas, and your current footwear fit, wear patterns, and functionality of your shoes. By assessing these areas, they will determine your eligibility and the amount of coverage that they are willing to provide for a pair of custom orthotics.
In most situations, your insurance company will not cover casual orthotic shoes. Instead, they will cover custom orthotics that offer you direct health benefits. They will typically deny claims for casual orthotics unless your plan specifically states that you are entitled to claim for them. If you have any questions about your coverage, you should contact your insurance company.
