WHY DO WE NEED A PRESCRIPTION?

Effective Treatment 
As pedorthists, we do not diagnose medical conditions or direct treatment in any way. We take our direction from the physician to provide a vital part of the comprehensive treatment program. A complete written prescription allows us to do just that. Please be as specific as possible about the type of footwear you want your patient to have, including:

  • Type of shoe
  • Insert or other internal shoe modifications
  • External shoe modifications
  • Whether the shoe is to be used in conjunction with a brace
  • Whether the footwear/ modifications are to be unilateral or bilateral

Please contact us with any questions or concerns you may have regarding written prescriptions or our services.

Diagnosis

We ask that you provide a complete diagnosis of the patient’s foot condition, including any of the following relevant information:

  • Contributing systemic disease
  • Physical disability

Patient Records

Your prescription becomes a permanent part of the patients record. The information in it serves as a valuable resource for providing follow-up care and monitoring patient progress.

Insurance Reimbursement

In order to obtain reimbursement for our services virtually all insurance companies, including state and federal agencies, HMO’s, and Worker’s Compensation, require a physician’s written prescription.
