Three years ago in Indiana, a group of amputees and prosthetists got together to battle for parity. Differing views and ideas were tossed around, along with some concerns. I had two concerns at the time. I felt the bill should specify that amputees would have the freedom to choose their prosthetist, as long as the prosthetist had a valid Medicare Provider ID number. This would prevent networks from dictating where the amputee must go for treatment. My other concern was about the bill’s ramifications. Forcing insurance companies to do something always opens a way for them to dodge the demand.
