How Much Does a Bionic Foot Cost?
The simple answer is $15,000 to $50,000 US. The prices of most bionic feet are dictated by Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement rates, which is why there are multiple feet in the $20,000 to $25,000 US range.
Note that these are estimated total cash prices to end-users including the socket and all prosthetist fees, etc., assuming no insurance coverage, for a typical solution in the U.S. We realize that few people buy bionic feet this way but we’re trying to provide a total price from the consumer perspective.
Bionic Foot Price Table
Because there are so many variables to pricing an individual bionic solution, we have decided to use price categories rather than precise prices. After all, our goal here is to help prospective end-users determine which bionic feet are in their general price range, not to price out individual solutions.
|Bionic Foot||Price Category (USD)|
|Ottobock Empower Ankle||$40,000 to $50,000|
|Freedom Kinnex||$20,000 to $25,000|
|Blatchford Elan Foot||$15,000 to $20,000|
|Blatchford Elan IC||Unknown**|
|Ossur Proprio Foot||$20,000 to $25,000|
|Ottobock Meridium||$20,000 to $25,000|
** The Elan IC is likely slightly more expensive than the Elan Foot…we just don’t have confirmation yet.
