The Professional's Choice for Orthotics

 

 

 

LOCAL 98 UNION ELECTRICIANS

Pro Support Systems (PSS)  serves as the preferred provider for Orthotics for all Union Local 98 members and their families. The preferred provider agreement between Pro Support Systems, Inc. and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Phila. Local 98 provides for all members and their families to receive comprehensive health care coverage for orthotic appliances as determined to be medically necessary.

A prescription for one pair of custom molded orthotic appliances per year will be paid directly to Pro Support  Systems (PSS) by the Union benefit plan.

The Union currently provides Pa Blue Cross/Blue Shield Personal Choice for medical coverage in all cases.  Under Personal Choice, orthotic appliances are not covered.  As a result of the preferred provider agreement with PSS, the Union members and their families will now have the opportunity to receive PSS orthotics from a PSS preferred provider and are not responsible for any balance for the cost of either the device or the casting.

The PSS Preferred Provider will perform an examination, take a cast impression and provide a prescription for the orthotics.  The Provider will charge Personal Choice for all applicable office visits, x- ray and surgical fees directly to PA Blue Shield.  The insured will be responsible for the co-pay on these services.  The Provider will not, however, charge the insured any fees related to casting for the orthotics and the orthotics.  The Doctor will be expected as part of his reimbursement for office visit services from Blue Shield, to make every attempt to fit and dispense the orthotics in a timely and professional manner. Orthotic orders for Union members will be sent exclusively to the PSS lab. No direct or balance billing to patients for orthotics and casting will be allowed.

The Preferred Provider Directory is available on this website to select your area provider.  The Pro Support System headquarters are located at the offices of Dr. Simon Small in Bala Cynwyd, Pa.
