Insurance, Medicare, Medicaid and HCPCS Codes

Please be aware that we are a small company and we do not bill insurance companies. You should contact your provider prior to placing your order to see if they will cover the products you require.


COOLING GARMENTS

We receive a lot of questions about whether or not insurance companies and Medicare/Medicaid will cover cooling garments. The answer varies by provider and plan, so we encourage you to contact your provider. We understand that insurance companies will sometimes, depending on your situation, cover the cost of a vest once you have met your deductible, so it is worth the inquiry.


Here is some helpful information:

POST-SURGERY THERAPY SYSTEM


We encourage you to contact your insurance company to see if they will allow you to submit a claim for reimbursement for our Active Ice® System


Here is some helpful information:
  • When you purchase an Active Ice® System or accessory directly from us, please request a priced receipt, which we will be happy to include with your package.
  • We do not need a prescription from your doctor, but it may be required by your insurance company.

HCPCS CODES:

It is solely the care provider's responsibility to determine if a given diagnosis properly corresponds to a given billing code. Polar Products is simply providing this information as a starting point for possible billing code applicability. This information is based upon anecdotal accounts of acceptable billing codes for diagnoses in which the identified product has been used in the past. Polar Products does not participate in the billing process and it is solely the caregiver's responsibility to determine if the billing code actually applies to the treatment provided.
