When Medicare is approving a free medical back brace, they will look to see if you have any of the following symptoms.

- Back pain
- Muscular strain
- Muscle contractions near the spine
If your doctor agrees a back brace is medically necessary, then it’s time to find a free back brace through Medicare. Medicare Part B covers arm, leg, back, and neck braces when a doctor agrees they are medically necessary.
Here are the three important steps to getting your back brace covered through Medicare.
- Have your doctor write a prescription

If you are covered by Medicare, your back brace could be covered up to 80%. If you have supplemental coverage you could have an even larger percent covered. Medicare considers back braces “prefabricated orthotics” which falls into a wide category of DEMPOS (durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies).
