We are excited to announce that the Diabetic Foot and Limb Preservation Centre was recently granted a licence to participate in Alberta Health’s Aids to Daily Living (AADL) Therapeutic Footwear Program!
AADL Therapeutic Footwear Program
The ADDL program, run by Alberta Health, is a cost-sharing program that provides funding for therapeutic footwear to individuals who suffer from neuropathy. The program will cover 75% of the approved benefit amount up to a maximum contribution of $500 per individual per benefit year. (Low-income Albertans and those receiving income assistance are cost-share exempt.)
Therapeutic Footwear Benefits include:
- Pressure downloading orthoses
- Commercially available therapeutic shoes
- Total contact insert
- Shoe modifications
Are you eligible for the program?
If you require therapeutic footwear ask your doctor if you are eligible for the program. If you are eligible your doctor can refer you the Diabetic Foot and Limb Preservation Centre or any other clinic that is a licensed prescriber to assess and submit your prescription.
