Clients With Benefits
Creating orthotics that your insurance benefits provider will pay for requires documentation. You will need:
Biomechanical Assessment Report or Gait Analysis: This will be completed by our practitioner during your first appointment.
Doctor’s Referral: This must come from a medical doctor. It also requires a diagnosis using medical terminology (e.g. “pes planus” instead of “flat feet”). You can get the requisite referral from either a walk-in clinic or your family doctor.
Certificate of Manufacture: This comes from the lab which crafts your orthotic under the supervision of a qualified professional such as an orthotist, pedortist or podiatrist. This Certificate report is required by all insurance companies when a claim is submitted.
If you do not have extended health benefits, you do not need to comply with the above requirements when submitting a claim. However you do need to see a professional orthotist, pedorthist or podiatrist in order to have a mold or scan of your feet before a custom orthotic can be tailored specifically for you.

The three most popular categories are everyday, sport and safety orthotics. We can also make orthotics for dress shoes.

No. A custom made orthotic is non-refundable. However, if your orthotic does not fit well, we will modify it to suit you better.
How long does an orthotic last?
A pair of orthotics should last between 1 to 5 years, depending on daily wear and tear. However, if you have extended health benefits,your insurance benefits provider may pay for a new pair every 12 months!
Are orthotics the same as shoes?
No, orthotic devices are insoles that go inside the shoes you already own. However,our clinic does offer shoes customized to fit your orthotic as a separate transaction.
I have extended benefits. Do I still need to pay?
Normally, yes. Most insurance benefits providers require that you pay for your orthotics, prior to being reimbursed. Eventually, clients with extended benefits will be fully reimbursed.
