What does an Orthotics fitting look like?
For custom-made orthotics to fit you properly, Dr. Rodney in North York Orthotics will perform a gait scan (it’s a computerized examination of the way you walk and stand) as well as an automated 3D casting of your foot. That way, we have information about both the dynamic and static issues with your feet, allowing us to make a better pair of orthotics for you.
Will insurance cover custom orthotics?
Most extended health care (EHC) plans cover orthotics. Please check the requirements and stipulations of your plan before your orthotics assessment.
Ask your insurance company:
- How much is covered?
- Do you require a prescription for the orthotics, and if so, who can make that prescription?
- Which health care providers are allowed to make and distribute the orthotics?
- What forms are required for reimbursement?
