Does My Insurance Cover Compression Stockings?

Does my insurance cover compression stockings? 

Well, your Medicare does not. Medicare only covers compression stockings when you are diagnosed with an active venous stasis ulcer.  Most people are prescribed compression stockings to help with edema, circulation issues, or pain.

Why did my doctor bother to write me a prescription then?

When your doctor write a prescription for an item, even if it's not paid for by your insurance, it lets us know exactly the product that they want you to use to improve your condition.

Medicare provides coverage for a wide range of medical services and supplies, but unfortunately, compression stockings are not included in their coverage. This can be frustrating for individuals who rely on these stockings to alleviate symptoms and improve their quality of life.

What are compression stockings?

Compression stockings are specially designed garments that apply pressure to the legs, promoting better blood flow and reducing swelling. They are commonly used to manage conditions such as varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis, and lymphedema. These stockings come in different levels of compression, and the right level is determined by your healthcare provider.
