In Québec, podiatric treatments are not covered by the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ). However, part of the costs are reimbursed by the majority of private insurance plans, including the costs of plantar orthoses. This is why it’s important to ask your insurance company which care and treatments are covered by your insurance plan.
Workers who receive indemnities paid by the CSST, SAAQ or Department of Veterans Affairs can benefit from coverage that will ensure the full reimbursement of podiatrist fees and costs of plantar orthoses, subject to certain conditions and authorizations. Simply ask for information during your next visit at the clinic.
Social assistance beneficiaries can benefit from partial coverage ensuring reimbursement of the costs of plantar orthoses.
