I just found out how much a set of custom fitted insteps costs (private sector) - $400. When I got my second set of insteps five years ago, I think I paid about $200 (public sector). However, Medibank preferred podiatrists charge 80% to Medibank, so I will only have to pay about $80-90. Beware - these practitioners (MB preferred) are very rare, and a lot of travelling is involved. I think saving $120 by not using the public sector podiatrists will cover travel costs, although it might be expensive getting a lift early on a Saturday.
