Will Insurance Cover Your Compression Stockings? How to Find Out

"Will Insurance Cover My Compression Garments?"

This is a question that we get all the time here at Medity Health, and the good news is that for most insurance companies, compression garments are covered! This includes compression stockings, compression sleeves, and compression wraps as well.

Luckily, at Medity Health, we're one of the few locations where you can quickly and easily get your benefits checked online. And, once we've checked your benefits, we can also go ahead and bill your insurance and ship your garments to you!

How Do I Check if Insurance Covers My Compression Garments?

There's two ways that you can check your insurance benefits at Medity Health.

  1. Give Us a Call: First, you can simply give us a call at (866) 945-4766 and any of our representatives will be able to assist you with getting your benefits checked!
  2. Fill Out Our Insurance Form: Second, you can fill out our online insurance form, and one of our representatives will reach out to you and go over your benefits.

Both of these options offer quick and easy ways to make sure your garments are covered by insurance and to see how much your insurance will pay.

How Much of My Compression Stockings Will My Insurance Cover?

Great question! There are a few different things which factor into how much your insurance company will cover:

  1. Is It Covered: First, we'll need to make sure compression garments are covered by your insurance.
  2. Deductible: Then, we'll see whether you've hit your out-of-network deductible for the year. This will affect whether your insurance will begin covering your expenses
  3. Coinsurance: Once your deductible has been hit, then we'll look at your coinsurance. Your coinsurance is the percentage of your expenses that you pay once your deductible has been met.

After checking all three items, we'll be able to accurately determine how many garments and what percentage of the total cost that insurance will cover.

Can I Use My Remaining FSA/HSA Money to Buy Compression Garments?

Yes, absolutely! Your FSA/HSA money can be used towards purchasing compression garments as part of your medical expenses for the year. Also, Medity Health is set up to process FSA/HSA cards, so you can use them at our store to get your compression garments.

Also, your FSA/HSA money will reset at the end of the year, so don't forget to the use the rest of your hard-earned before benefits reset at the end of the year.

How Long Does It Take to Check My Benefits?

In short, it takes only a few minutes to get your benefits checked!

Either give us a call or fill out our insurance form online, and a representative will reach out to you to collect a few details and verify your benefits.
