Foot Orthotic Facts

Updated: Dec 31, 2019

How long do orthotics last?

On average, two years is what we tell people.

Our heavier clients who work 12-hour shifts may not get as long, and those who are lighter and wear them less may get more time.

Do insurance companies pay for orthotics?

MSI does not cover anything related to orthotics but a private health plan does. You are best to call your insurance company to ask about your specific coverage for pedorthic consultation and orthotics before booking with us. Often these are separate coverages. Some health plans cover 1-2 pairs per year. You may also require a doctor’s prescription that states a foot diagnosis.
