Insurance Coverage for Orthotics and Bracing
Applied Biomechanics is an approved vendor of the Ontario Assistive Devices Program and accepts a wide variety of private insurance providers. We can help you determine the right insurance and funding options for your custom orthotics and bracing needs.
Extended Health Benefits
Insurance coverage for custom orthotics is typically included in extended health benefit packages determined by your employer. Many benefit packages cover the costs of custom orthotics in part, or in whole, as they are not covered by OHIP.
Since every person will have unique coverage, we highly recommend that you contact your company’s service provider for specific information about your policy and what percentage is covered.
