Certified mastectomy fitters are professionally credentialed
The American Board for Certification of Orthotics and Prosthetics (ABC) is the national certifying and accrediting body for orthotic, prosthetic and pedorthic professions. The ABC has become the quality standard for certification. It provides credentialing for mastectomy fitters and facility accreditation for the Centers for Medicare/Medicaid Services (CMS), Veterans’ Administrations and other health care insurance providers. The Genesis Women’s Boutique mastectomy fitters are certified by the ABC.
Awarded to orthotic centers that achieve excellence in prosthetics
Maintaining accreditation through the ABC demonstrates our commitment to providing certified professionals for your personalized fitting after a mastectomy or lumpectomy. The Genesis Cancer Care Center and Women’s Boutique meet the standards to ensure you reach your goals for fittings. Insurance companies see this as a sign of quality as they determine payment for the services at the Women’s Boutique based on your insurance plan
Certified mastectomy fitters meet requirements
The certified mastectomy fitters at Genesis meet education and experience requirements to be eligible to take the certification exam. After they receive their certification, fitters must maintain continuing education for maintenance of this credential.
