Frequently Asked Questions

 
 

I have health insurance. Can Steps of Faith help me pay my deductible or out of pocket expenses for my prosthesis?

Unfortunately no. We help uninsured and underinsured amputees with prosthetic expenses. While we understand that deductibles and out of pocket expenses can be very high, these are not expenses that Steps of Faith can help with. We recommend you speak with your prosthetist to discuss working out a payment plan for any out of pocket or deductible expenses. As a second option we recommend looking into CareCredit.

Does Steps of Faith help amputees in countries outside of the United States?

No, not at this time. We recommend checking the Amputee Coalition of America website for potential international funding sources.

Does Steps of Faith help upper extremity amputees as well as lower extremity amputees?

Absolutely!

Is Steps of Faith directly affiliated with any religious organizations?

No we are not.

Do you accept donated prosthetic limbs?

Absolutely! What we do not accept are any used or open liners or socks. If you would like to donate a new or used prosthetic device, first please call Steps of Faith at (615)426-6034 or email us at billy@stepsoffaithfoundation.org.

Do you have a peer support program?

We do not currently run our own peer support program. We recommend these organizations that have great databases of peer support programs in a city near you. Amputee Coalition of America and AMPOWER

I am an amputee and I don’t need financial help with my prosthesis, but can Steps of Faith help me with other needs, such as rehabbing my home to become handicap accessible?

Unfortunately no. We recommend visiting the Amputee Coalition of America website for possible resources.
