After reinjuring my meniscus, my ortho brought a Breg knee support into the exam room and put this brace on my leg to help with buckling until PT and/or surgery completed. Only need it during certain times when my knee is weak, not continually. I remember wondering if this would be covered by my insurance, but was sure it wouldn’t cost more than $100.00 or the doctor would not have just put on me without verifying I could afford it. Wrong!! Got a bill last week. Breg charged my insurance $900.00 for this contraption!! | Insurance approved paid $85.00 and BREG is wanting $380.00 from me. I couldn’t believe it. Such a HUGE rip-off. I now see The Brace Shop has the exact same brace for $123.00. Its website says your save 58% of cost, normally $253.00! This is a huge insurance scam by Breg and I advise everyone to NOT accept any type of orthotic from your physician until you have done your research. You absolutely will be able to find a MUCH more affordable applicance at your local drug or sports stores or via online. I am DIGUSTED!! And their first bill is very demanding of payment. They must have a LOT of disgruntled and/or stuggling people who take their time to pay their outrageous bills.
