What does it cost? And who pays?
The costs for biomechanical braces or orthoses are fixed by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and are based on material and labour costs.
The Ministry’s Assistive Devices Program (ADP) covers a major portion of the cost of most orthoses. Patients or family members are required to pay the remainder of the cost. Private health insurance plans may assist with this portion.
Clients and/or their parents (in the case of a youth) who are receiving support through the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) or for Assistance for Children with Severe Disabilities (ACSD) will be eligible for 100% funding collectively via ADP and ODSP or ACSD.
Orthoses used for sports-related injuries, or non-chronic conditions are not covered under this program. Please note that OHIP does not cover any foot orthotic devices.
