HKAFO for proximal fracture-Medicare coverage

Randy McFarland

Hi List members,

For the first time we’ve been asked to provide a functional fracture
orthosis for a pt with a healing mid femoral fracture. Pt. is 76 yo and is
refusing surgery. Healing is taking place and she is to resume ambulation
starting with toe touching once she has the orthosis. The hip component is
to control rotation as it will not counteract the abduction forces involved.

Have any you had any experience regarding payment from Medicare for such an
orthosis?

Thanks,

Randy McFarland, CPO
