Does Medicare cover prosthetics?

January 10, 2021

From the Medical News Today website

Artificial devices called prostheses can replace a missing part of a person’s body, such as an arm or a leg. Medicare tends to cover prosthetic devices and supplies.

In addition, prostheses may include cochlear implants, contact lenses after surgery, and breast prostheses after a mastectomy.

Medicare generally provides coverage for prosthetic devices and supplies, though there may be some restrictions and some costs.
