What are the costs for orthotics? Is there insurance coverage?

Orthotics usually range in price from $450-$650, depending on the level of customizing involved and the model selected.  Most company health insurance plans or extended health care plans will cover 1-2 pairs of orthotics a year.  Some insurance companies will specify that the orthotic be cast by a chiropodist or a podiatrist.  It is best to ask your insurer to verify your specific coverage.
