To some degree: Some insurances pay for prosthetic feet. If you do not have insurance, you can discuss with the prosthetist about a cash payment plan and discounts. There are some agencies in different states that may help offset the cost. They will likely be income based. Check with your state agencies.

Insurance: Most insurances cover prosthetics. Go to your medical assitance office and apply iof you can't afford any insurance. Also contact your local state rep if you can't get medical assistance.
