How this change affects you:
1. Details of the new definition are on Dr. Richie’s announcement letter that we mailed to all of our customers in late December.
2. All Richie Braces that are dispensed by December 31, 2012 are fine as is and no further action is required
3. If you dispense a Richie Brace to a Medicare patient after January 1, 2013 you will need to send it back to ComfortFit for installation of the “Upgrade Kit with Pre Tibial shell”. There is a small cost for the upgrade kit.
4. Going forward, for all Medicare patients you will need to order the new Richie Brace Ultra. You will be required to use the STS Mid Leg casting sock for ALL Richie Brace Ultra orders (call ComfortFit for your sock requirements).
