Patient Consultation Fees
There's no such thing as cookie-cutter care at Nobbe Orthopedics. Each patient will
receive individual, unrushed attention by a highly trained professional. Each patient's experience and treatment will be unique to his or her circumstances.
Nobbe Orthopedics pairs this highly individualized care with the latest in
orthotic/prosthetic technology, which maximizes fit and function for the patient.
Unfortunately, cutting edge technology may increase cost. Orthotic and prosthetic costs are a combination of the individualized service component and the direct hardware costs--you get the best of both at Nobbe Orthopedics.
The costs of these services include: the professional time of the orthotist/prosthetist, professional continuing education, other business overhead expenses and, increasingly, the administrative costs of health insurance plan requirements. HMOs, PPOs, Medicare, Medicaid and Workers' Compensation have placed increasing demands on all health care providers.
Our services will include all fittings, castings, and adjustments for 90 days after date of delivery. Further alterations may be required for a variety of reasons, including: change in medical condition, weight gain or loss, additional surgery, natural aging of brace, or other reasons. Necessary adjustments may incur additional labor costs.
Professional fees for the initial consultation with the prosthetist/orthotist may be
applicable that may not be covered by your insurance plan, including MediCare. These fees would then become your personal financial responsibility and are due and payable at the time of your visit. Within thirty (30) days of your first visit, should you elect to proceed with the prescribed services as recommended, this initial fee is applied towards the cost of the prescribed device.
