What To Do About Prescription Medical Supplies

When your doctor prescribes medicine, you know where to go. But what about when you get a prescription for medical supplies?

If I Need Medical Supplies, Where Do I Go?

Most people don’t know what to do with a prescription for medical supplies or if their insurance will cover it. Referred to as health care materials ordered or prescribed by a physician, primarily used to serve a purpose, Some traditional pharmacies can dispense these items. And others have specific Medical Supply Departments.

CHI Health Pharmacies have an entire department dedicated to just that! CHI Health RX Supplies is committed to ensuring patients are able to get the medical supplies they need.

We Specialize in Patients Who Need the Following:

  • Ostomy
  • Catheters or urological
  • Nutritional
  • Incontinence
  • Wound care
  • Diabetic supplies

Does My Insurance Cover Medical Supplies?

Let’s be honest, health insurance can be complicated. It’s true that some insurances cover some medical supplies and not others. And there are different requirements and documentation needed. But CHI Health Pharmacy Supplies has a whole team of people who will do that work for you. We will verify coverage with your insurance and obtain any documentation needed directly from your doctor. We are here to help you!
