Yes. You will need a prescription if you are renting or purchasing any equipment from us that either moves a joint (CPM) or pumps blood (foot pump, SCD, lymphedema pump). Your doctor knows your specific situation and condition better than we do and you need to have their OK before using any of our equipment. The prescription is necessary regardless of if you are prepaying for the unit OR if you want us to bill the rental to your insurance. We can help you get the prescription if you want us to do so. If you have any questions about this policy, please contact one of our Patient Care Representatives at 1-877-301-4276.
