The Professional's Choice for Orthotics




Philadelphia Federation  of Teachers Health & Welfare Fund

The PFT Health & Welfare Fund  has entered into an agreement with Pro Support Systems (PSS) to provide reduced rates for orthotic appliances.  An orthotic is a three-layered shoe insert made to control and balance the foot while providing cushioned shock absorption.  The discounted price for members (including dependents) will be $195.00.  This includes the casting.  The usual price could be over $400.00.

  1. Contact the PFT Health & Welfare Fund Office at 215-561-2722 to request verification of eligibility.
  2. Receive eligibility verification in mail and contact Pro Support Systems at 610-664-0848 or 800-262-3338.
  3. Make arrangements for payment and receipt of voucher certificate.
  4. Find a Preferred Provider who accepts the voucher certificate.
  5. Upon receipt of the voucher, the member will choose a provider from the list.  Remember, you must select a provider who participates in the program to use the discount voucher.

Once you receive the voucher certificate, your medical insurance will determine the next step.

Personal Choice  

Those with Personal Choice will select a provider from the Pro Support Systems Network and present the voucher to receive orthotics.

 All providers in the Pro Support Systems Network participate in Personal Choice. The provider will perform an examination, take a cast impression and provide a prescription for the orthotics and forward them to the PSS lab.  The provider will charge Personal Choice for all applicable office visits, x-rays and surgical fees.  The insured will be responsible for the co-pay on these services.


Members enrolled in Keystone will see their provider and obtain a prescription from the Keystone Provider for the orthotic.  If the provider is a member of the Pro Support Systems Network, the provider will cast and fit the orthotic.  Should the doctor not be a member of the Pro Support Systems Network, the patient will select a provider from the Pro Support Systems Network,  present the voucher certificate and the doctor´┐Żs prescription and receive the casting and fitting at no additional charge.


The procedures will be the same for Personal Choice.  In all instances, Medicare will be the primary  payer for non-orthotic services.
