Do you need a doctor’s note for orthotics?

Last Updated: November 29, 2022

In Ontario, for insurance companies to reimburse costs associated with orthotics you will almost always require a prescription note from physician or a foot specialist such as a chiropodist or podiatrist. Due to the severe doctor shortage in Ontario, as well as the availability of foot experts, most people are able to avoid the hassle of seeking and waiting to see a physician simply by seeing our chiropodist.
At Emkiro you will be able to obtain the following accepted insurance documentation which generally involves the following 4 items:

1. Chiropodist Referral Note for Custom Orthotics with Diagnosis

2. Biomechanical Examination information including casting method, raw materials used

3. Receipt of Payment

4. Proof of Manufacturing

Call us at 416-977-7474 to schedule your orthotics appointment as soon as possible before the cut-off date December 16, 2022. (This is the last date of orders that the orthotics laboratory can guarantee final manufacture of the orthotic before the end of 2022).
