Got Health Insurance? Need Compression Garments? Private Health Rebates are possible when purchasing from Bodyment.
You may have noticed Bodyment stocks a large range of top quality surgical garments made with anti-bacterial fabric for post op wear. We also have an extensive range of garments, including graduated socks and stockings for everyday wear, after a surgical procedure or when flying.
Does my Private Health cover post-operation compression garments?
Bodyment understands that the cost of these garments – especially if you are required to wear them on a daily basis, can be expensive. We are committed to ensuring our customers take advantage of their Private Health Insurance, or where applicable Medicare.
Most leading Health Insurers provide generous rebates for customers who are required to wear compression garments after a surgery, or for everyday wear. We have worked with these health funds for almost two decades, and have gathered some important information for you.
Some Health Funds require a letter from your Health Professional confirming that you are required to wear compression. All our Health Rebate Invoices include the information your Fund requires.
