If you are seeking medical benefit reimbursement, or third-party funding, the information on a prescription is important to have complete. This avoids delays in processing.
- A diagnosis is needed. Example: plantar fasciitis
- A general Rx is ideal, but specific to the area being treated. Example: bilateral custom foot orthoses Example: left custom knee brace.
- Be sure the prescription is signed, dated by your physician and has your physicians MSP number on it.
If you are not receiving reimbursement or third-party funding, it is still worthwhile obtaining an Rx as this ensures your orthotic or brace is tax exempt.
