- Driver’s licensed or state-issued identification

What will the licensed prosthetics professional evaluate during my initial consultation?
We will begin your appointment with a thorough consultation by one of our certified and licensed prosthetics professionals to evaluate your situation. During this evaluation, we typically review your medical history, obtain detailed information regarding your disability or injury, discuss your lifestyle and activities you like to do, conduct a clinical observation of gait (walking), perform muscle testing to find out what kind of muscular response you have to stimuli, check your balance, determine your proprioception or the awareness of your body, especially limbs in position to space, and review any other information to assess your probable success with a prosthetic device.
once my doctor approves the plan for my prosthetic device, what happens?
After your physician approves our findings, the administration part of your journey will begin. This may be a simple phone call to your insurance provider, or the process can take longer. Many insurance companies ask for more information and detailed medical records.
It typically takes between 7 to 10 days from your initial visit to get all the necessary information to your insurance provider. This time will vary depending on your physician and insurance company’s time frame, as well as the insurance company’s requirements. In most circumstances, approval takes 10-14 business days from the time your insurance company has all of the records they need. If your condition is complex, this time frame may be extended.
how do i pay for my prosthetic device?
In addition to most major credit cards and CareCredit, we also provide financial counseling and make payment options available to you. We do everything in our power to ensure medical costs don’t stand in the way of you receiving the prosthetic device you need.
how will you make sure my prosthetic device will fit properly?
Once the administrative process is completed, we will contact you to arrange an appointment with your prosthetics professional. At this appointment, we will take final measurements or casting so your prosthetic or orthotic device can be created. Depending on the complexity of the prosthetic device, multiple fitting appointments may be necessary prior to the final fitting and delivery of the device.
what if i have questions or need help after receiving my prosthetic device?
Even after your journey with us has been completed, we want to ensure you’re able to get the most from the prosthetic devices we provide.
