GREAT NEWS FOR WOMEN DEALING WITH POST BREAST CANCER SURGERY!

Help is now available from Alberta Aids to Daily Living (AADL), insurance and income tax deductions.

How can I benefit?

1. Alberta Aids to Daily Living (AADL) assists Albertans with a long-term disability, chronic illness or terminal illness in maintaining independence in their community. AADL provides funding for basic medical equipment and supplies to meet clinically assessed needs*.

The program is available through approved specialty vendors, of which Compassionate Beauty is one. This program is a cost share for breasts forms. Those eligible are offered a cost sharing of either $263.02 or up to $350.7 per breast prosthesis every three years if needed.

2. Insurance: In addition to the provincial program, many families also have third party private insurance (also referred to as extended health care plans). Please call your insurer and/or review your policy to ensure you’re taking advantage of the maximum benefit allowed.

Here’s one example of an insurance policy coverage that may apply to you:

Prosthetic equipment – We cover external breast prostheses once per insured person per calendar year. We’ll pay for 2 surgical brassieres per insured person per calendar year.

3. Income Tax: In addition to the above resources, many of the medical items that are GST exempt may also be income tax deductions. When discussing this with your income tax preparer please let them know that Compassionate Beauty’s medical items are GST exempt and therefore should be considered income tax deductions.

At Compassionate Beauty we share your journey and offer the most up to date products, services and care to meet your needs. We invite you visit us for your prosthesis needs. Breast prostheses or breast forms come in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials. We carry an extensive selection to ensure that you’ll leave with a prosthesis that will come as close as possible to matching your other breast as well as your specific body type. Our professional, certified fitters will meet with you one-to-one to explain your options, review selections and custom fit a breast form to your specific needs making sure that everything fits, matches and is weighted to the proportions of your body. I can’t stress enough how important it is for you to be fitted by a certified professional. We want to ensure that you look fabulous, natural and confident. Please book an appointment for a prosthesis fitting so that you can have all of the professional attention that you deserve. Give us a call today.
