DO I NEED A PRESCRIPTION FOR YOUR SERVICES?
Yes, in order to start the actual prosthetic process and other services you will need a prescription. A free consultation is available to meet our staff and receive more information without a prescription.
WILL MY INSURANCE PAY FOR MY PROSTHESIS OR ORTHOSIS?
Yes, most services at Centers for Mobility are covered by insurances. However, each coverage plan varies. Centers for Mobility Prosthetics will verify your benefits and file your claim.
WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE INSURANCE?
Centers for Mobility Prosthetics works with several organizations that may help fund your prosthetic devices.
WHEN SHOULD I CONTACT A PROSTHETIST?
Centers for Mobility Prosthetics recommends contacting a prosthetist as soon as possible. If possible, meeting with your prosthetist prior to your amputation can help you manage much of the normal anxiety associated with such a significant life event. If meeting prior to the procedure is not possible, then meet with your prosthetist as soon after the amputation as you can.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY PROSTHESIS?
Delivery time will vary based on your healing process. Generally, it will take several weeks to receive your prosthesis once your residual limb is healed. There are several steps to the prosthetic process.
WHY DOES THE FIRST PROSTHESIS NOT HAVE A COVER SO IT LOOKS LIKE A LEG?
Once your definitive prosthesis has been adjusted to a comfortable fit, you will have the option to request a cover and/or skin. The prosthesis can be covered cosmetically to closely resemble your natural leg.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I SEE MY PROSTHETIST?
You will generally see your prosthetist twice a year. Call for an appointment if you are experiencing any issues with your prostheses such as an uncomfortable fit, irritation, blisters, pain, noises, cracks, loose parts, weight gain or weight loss.
