The medical classification used by insurance companies and medical organizations like the American Medical Association (AMA) to describe the Carpal Solution Device is a Hand Finger Orthosis. This designation appears on the receipt you receive through email with your order for the Carpal Solution Six Week Therapy Pac.
For minimally invasive devices in the Orthotic classification all that is required by most insurance companies for reimbursement is a copy of the appropriate prescription, a copy of the receipt documenting that you purchased what the doctor prescribed and a HCFA-1500 Claim Form. To speed reimbursement it is best to have all three. Sometimes the insurance clerk will fill out the claim form on your behalf, but it can slow the process.
Doctors at First Hand Medical stated that, “Insurance companies generally reimburse 70 to 90% of your expenditure upon following this procedure, depending on the type of coverage to which your insurance policy entitles you.
You may want to check with your health insurance provider in advance regarding your coverage.”
As a convenience for medical professionals, patients and health insurers, a summary of the appropriate descriptive insurance codes commonly used follows.
