Prostheses

 

A prosthesis is a surgically implanted medical device or artificial body part, like hip and knee joints and heart pacemakers.

If you have a surgery that needs a prosthesis, it may cost more than the standard ‘no gap’ prosthesis fee. If so, you’ll need to pay this additional amount yourself. If you’d rather limit your out of pocket expenses, ask your doctor if there is a ‘no gap’ prosthesis available.
