Do you have private health insurance? With a large number of private health funds having a deadline of December 31st 2020 for their customers to use the podiatry services that they pay a premium for, you now have just three months to take advantage of these benefits. This includes claiming your orthotics rebate on a new or second pair of custom foot orthotics so you can get them with just a low gap*.
Whether you call them foot orthotics, orthoses or insoles, these devices can help treat many lower limb problems, improve lower limb function, and help alleviate painful symptoms. Unfortunately, every so often, we come across patients that previously had orthotics that didn’t help them as they’d hoped. It’s disheartening – and patients often begin to believe that orthotics just don’t work for them, without understanding why. Today, we’re sharing why orthotics may not have helped you previously, why you shouldn’t lose hope in them, and how our orthotics are created differently.
