How can I get reimbursement for my partial foot prosthesis?

If you have private health insurance, the amount of reimbursement available for your partial foot prosthesis depends on your specific contract. Assuming your contract covers reimbursement for the prosthesis, you will probably need a doctor's prescription first.

The reimbursement process is relatively simple. Following your initial consultation, the prosthetist will take care of the application for reimbursement. He or she will then prepare an estimate of the costs for your partial foot prosthesis and submit this to your paying party.

Once the cost estimate has been approved, your medical supply company will be notified and can start the fitting process.

Occasionally, the paying party declines reimbursement for a prosthesis and the medical supply company receives notification of rejection. If this happens in your case, you can still appeal the decision. In such circumstances, you should always seek legal advice, so you know exactly what your individual health plan entitles you to.
