Free Back Brace By Medicare
Lower back pain can make life very difficult. For those living with lower back pain, many doctors recommend a back brace. If you are covered by Medicare, you may be able to have the cost of the back brace covered, leaving you to pay little to no money. Here’s some information on free back brace by Medicare.
When Medicare is approving a free Medicare back brace, they will look to see if you have any of the following symptoms.
- Weakness in your legs and/or feet
- Back pain
- Muscular strain
- Muscle contractions near the spine
If your doctor agrees a back brace is medically necessary, they can write a prescription. If you are covered by Medicare, your back brace could be covered. Medicare considers back braces “prefabricated orthotics” which falls into a wide category of DEMPOS (durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies).
Back Braces Medicare Approved – A&B Coverage
If you are hospitalized, Medicare A will apply to your care.
If you are not hospitalized, but have a prescription for a back brace from your doctor, Medicare B will cover 80% to 100% of the cost of your back brace.
Medicare B covers arm, leg back and neck braces. Once you receive the prescription from your doctor, you need to purchase the brace through a provider that is Medicare-certified.
