(pley-jee-uh-sef-uh-lee), sometimes referred to as “flat head syndrome”
or “deformational plagiocephaly,” can potentially cause you and your
family tremendous anxiety.
The Hanger Cranial Band is a treatment option for infants with abnormal head shape or “deformational plagiocephaly.” Plagiocephaly means the flattening or deformation of a baby’s head and is often classified as mild, moderate, or severe.
If your baby has been diagnosed with plagiocephaly, brachycephaly, or scaphocephaly, you can rest assured that the condition will be treated safely and painlessly with the help of our Hanger Clinic orthotists. The device we have developed to treat your baby is the Hanger Cranial Band. It’s an FDA cleared orthosis, specifically designed to treat deformational plagiocephaly.
The good news: with the
help of a trained and experienced orthotist, plagiocephaly is actually
an easily correctable condition, especially if it’s recognized,
diagnosed, and treated early with a cranial remolding orthosis (cranial
Hanger Clinic has extensive information regarding plagiocephaly and treatment plans. With a Hanger Cranial Band, you’re not just getting an effective orthotic treatment system; you’re joining the vast Hanger Clinic network of clinically trained orthotic professionals with the expertise to make your child’s treatment a success.
One of Hanger Clinic’s many advantages is our scope—over 740+ clinics nationwide. This allows us to accept more private health insurance plans than any other orthotic or prosthetic provider in the industry. In fact, over 82% of all Hanger Cranial Bands are covered by insurance.
The majority of the orthotic and prosthetic services provided by Hanger Clinic are covered by health insurance. The amount of coverage available for cranial remolding orthoses can vary quite a bit, depending on your policy type. However, if you have more than one insurance plan, it’s possible that the entire cost of your baby’s care could be covered.In some cases, you may have an out-of-pocket co-pay when your child is fit for his or her cranial band. Our insurance administrators are happy to look into your individual benefits plan and speak with your insurance company on your behalf. By working closely with your child’s Hanger Clinic healthcare team, we can help you get the most from the insurance benefits you’re entitled to and minimize your financial contribution. Partnering with us may also give you additional leverage when negotiating with your insurance company. Remember, all initial evaluative scans are free. You need not obtain insurance coverage unless a cranial band is medically necessary. Our approach to treatment is conservative. We only fit babies who truly need an orthosis.
