Amputee Coalition Offers Helpful Guide

From Staff Reports

Are you a nonprofit or healthcare professional that works with amputees? Are you or a loved one coping with the challenges of limb loss? Order the First Step/Reimbursement Guide Combo Pack from the Amputee Coalition.


These two essential resource guides, packaged together, provide information on living well with limb loss and enable consumers to make informed decisions about their healthcare.  The 2014 edition of First Step: A Guide for Adapting to Limb Loss was published to help amputees who are coping with the challenges of limb loss. Our newest resource guide, Insurance Coverage & Reimbursement: How to Be Your Own Advocate, will add to the already comprehensive information that is available in First Step. Topics include: how to be your own advocate, information on private insurance and government programs, the appeals process, and resources to help amputees and their families/caregivers.
