There are a number of options available
There are a number of avenues for funding custom-made orthotic devices. We'll help you understand the various forms and documents.
Assistive Devices Program
The costs for custom-made orthotic devices are fixed by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MHLTC) and are based on material and labour costs.
The MHLTC provides funding for orthotic devices through the Assistive Devices Program (ADP). To qualify, the MHLTC requires applicants have “a physical disability requiring a custom orthotic brace for 6 months or longer”. Custom-made orthotic devices are covered through this program while ready-to-wear braces and foot orthotics are not. All eligible individuals and devices will receive 75% coverage.
Clients who are receiving support through the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) or for Assistance for Children with Severe Disabilities (ACSD) may be eligible to receive additional funding up to 100% of the ADP approved price.
Clients not receiving support through ODSP or ACSD may be eligible for addition coverage through private insurance plans. Private insurance plans may reimburse clients for their portion of custom orthotic devices not covered under ADP. In addition private insurance companies may cover a portion of the costs of ready-to-wear braces and foot orthotics.
Not-for-profit agencies such as the MS Society, March of Dimes or Easter Seals may also provide funding. If you are applying to one of these organizations, please let us know and our staff will provide you with a quotation to include in your application.
