We at Stellar P&O understand the financial burden that prosthetics and orthotics can be on an individual or family. We also understand the complexities of health insurance. Which is why we make every effort to help our clients understand the benefits associated with their particular insurance policy, clearing indicating those products and services that are covered and those which are not.
For those whose insurance policy may not cover fully or partially the expenditures associated with their prosthetic or orthotic care, we have provided a list of resources below that may prove helpful:
