|Question:||My father is just getting out of the hospital after 3 months for cellitus from his bed sores. I am bringing him home to my house to live. He is totally bedridden. What is the best product for a person like this. Also how would I get medicare to pay for this?|
Thank you for your inquiry. ACS Comfort Gel Plus Overlay is best used for individuals who are not completely bedridden. Low Air Loss Alternating Pump & Mattress System is a much more effective solution for providing comfort and preventing bed sores for bed confined individuals. Medicare reviews claims on a case-by-case basis. Since we do not file for Medicare reimbursements, you may wish to contact a durable medical equipment in your area.
