You put this on your existing leg usually by using a pyramid adapter (extra charge) loosening only two of the four female pylon screws and then when you put this in - the alignment is the same.
Cost is $3,999.00, which bills typically at up to $9,760.52, to insurance carriers for the knee package for sale here only, so usually the insurance carrier is pleased to pay less for cash and carry to the patient on a reimbursement and sometimes there then is no co-pay to a patient reimbursement type claim. In that case we would need a specific prescription from a doctor to replace the part specifying that the patient will do the swap of the part; before purchase - before an insurance carrier will even consider paying the reimbursement claim.
You also get a free video on how to bench or static alignment set up the knee properly. You CANNOT buy from Swan direct nor their distributors direct, so do not call them to try. No - the new cost of AK walking is not cheap - this is what they cost NEW. HOWEVER, if you do not have suitable socket we may refuse to sell to you, or require to build one suitable first. The video which comes with this does show how to build a socket.
You CANNOT buy this for someone else, pay for it for someone else, nor as a gift and we would need to see your prescription copy, then followed by the sending us the actual original for our files and you would need to upload a pic of you current leg after payment and specify an insurance carrier and your policy number you want to seek reimbursement from - AFTER the sale.
We have the right to require a pic of the leg after install of the knee also, before continuing to process the reimbursement claim; as the warranty and insurance carrier duty to reimburse you is tied to proper setup of the knee on the socket. We do not guarantee reimbursement but only tell you we can usually accomplish submitting it as a provider.
Some HMO's however are staunch lock-outs to out of network providers. Attention: This sale may involve a discount or reduction in price.
