Medicare

Postby Lonehill » Fri May 19, 2017 7:30 pm

I'm sure this has been asked before but I couldn't find any current info in Search.

Will Medicare pay for a pump if prescribed by my doctor?

I'm currently experimenting with injections but not much success so my doctor suggested using a pump in conjunction with the trimix injections (after trying 20 injections with different doses and strengths I'm feeling like a pin cushion)

The vacume pump or VED.
Answer is no.
They used to. People complained now no.
Costing govt millions.
After that prices of pumps fell alot.
I would look around. Months after you could find big price differences for same pump. Thier was 1 that was popular. I found some did not like it. I went with another 1.
Thinking of getting implant. Have not done it because of the length I
have lost.

I found a VED pump system on Amazon similar to the "medically approved" systems for $79.
