Insurance-Covered Orthotics? Get the Most Out of Your Plan

Did you know that if you have private health insurance, corrective footwear like custom orthotics are likely covered under your plan? Whether your employer provides benefits under your group insurance plan or you pay for it privately, you may have more coverage than you think. If you need compression socks or custom orthotics, you will benefit from Align Custom Fit Footwear’s complete service. Make your orthotics insurance claims before the end of 2017 to gain the most from your benefits.

Learn More About Your Insurance Plan
Proper body alignment and posture are important factors in our physical health. That’s why most insurance companies recognize the need for corrective orthotics and footwear—to help improve our musculoskeletal wellbeing. Just as you wear glasses to correct your vision, you should also be wearing custom orthotics to correct your gait and improve your posture. Regular footwear is rarely covered by insurance, so if you are making a claim, you will want to clarify with your insurance provider if they cover regular footwear, orthopedic footwear (often referred to as orthotic footwear), or custom-made orthopedic footwear.

Align Custom Fit Footwear provides a full range of custom Align Orthotics, fashion footwear, orthopedic footwear, compression socks and/or stockings and services, such as slow motion video gait analysis to provide our clients with made-to-measure solutions for their unique musculoskeletal systems. Many of our services are covered under most insurance plans; however, the amount of coverage varies from company to company, and plan to plan. The best way to find out what benefits apply to your plan is to contact your insurance provider.

What if Your Insurance Plan Doesn’t Cover What You Need?
Custom orthotic coverage ranges between $200 and $650 per pair. Most plans cover one pair, but it’s possible that some may cover more. Typically, most insurance plans include an average of two to six pairs of compression socks. It is advised to find out from your insurance provider just how much coverage you have before making your purchase—this way, you can budget your investment appropriately. If you would like some guidance on what questions to specifically ask your insurance provider, simply email us a request and we will be happy to provide you with a list of
specific questions.
