Medicare Guidelines:

Allow a prosthesis to be replaced every 5 years, or as medically needed, as the plastic will become porous and begin to promote infection. This porosity is not always obvious to the naked eye. Medicare does allow the prosthesis to be replaced sooner if the physician recognizes anatomical changes to the socket or lid surgery causing the prosthesis to be ill-fitting. The prosthesis should be polished 1 to 2 times per year and reduction and enlargements as deemed necessary.
