Orthotics are medical devices that are used to support and align the feet, ankles, and legs. They should be custom-made, and are typically prescribed by a doctor or chiropodist / podiatrist. In order to get orthotics covered, you will need to have a prescription from a chiropodist / podiatrist or doctor and submit a claim to your insurance provider. Depending on your specific insurance plan, some or all of the cost of the orthotics may be covered. It’s a good idea to check with your insurance provider to find out exactly what is covered under your plan.
