Will health insurance cover a tempur-pedic mattress?
I've heard that Gallery Furniture in Houston will help you determine whether your insurance will pay for the mattress.
Yet another scam. No wonder insurance rates are so high.

Answer . \nFirst check your policy. Then check http://www.steveshorr.com/technical_questions.htm#Primary for the rules on who pays first.\n. \nBasically a 2nd policy wil…l pay what the primary didn't, but not more than 100% of your bills.\n. \nIf the bills are not relevant, then it's a supplemental policy.
No not a mattress for a normal bed whether tempur-pedic or otherwise. They will cover 80% of a hospital bed and Tempur-Pedic does make a mattress for this style of bed. With a… very specific prescription Medicare may cover 20% of that mattress but you have to pay for it up front and Medicare MAY reimburse you or the provider (like a home health store) the 20%.. I just spent 3 days researching this very subject and Medicare will not cover the cost of a "normal" mattress even with a doctor's prescription. By this I mean I have a prescription in my hand that states I need to have a posturpedic firm - extra firm mattress or a Tempur-pedic or other memory foam type mattress, after contacting three different home health companies (they provide hospital beds, replacement hospital bed mattresses, lifts etc.) that all told me they have never heard of Medicare paying for a normal mattress so I decided to contact Medicare directly. I talked to three different people and all of them said the same thing. A hospital bed would be covered if my doctor prescribes one, however no normal mattress is covered for any reason. There are some mattresses and Mattress covers provided for patients with ulcers of the skin etc. but they have to be waterproof and other restrictions apply.. For a closer inspection of your own look under. Pressure Reducing Support Surfaces - *Group 1 Group 2 and Group 3. At http://www.medicare.gov and you will have to put in your own state and narrow it down from there.. Group 1 is as close as your going to get to a mattress and Medicare will only pay for waterproof mattresses under this group.
No. Elective surgery isn't covered. A treadmill would be cheaper.
It's dependent on the specific health care plan and/or Medicare eligibility. However, for most people, the answer to this question would be NO. I found BCBS's prescription …drug plan (CVS Caremark) does NOT offer VIAGRA through it's mail order prescription drug plan. When researching a retail pharmacy (Walgreen's) in conjunction with CVS Caremark's site, their price quote was $137.85 / 6 tablets with plan member responsible for entire portion -- with $0 covered by BCBS.
Yes. Then you'll have two!
Depends on your policy
i dont know im tryin to work it out myself
That entirely depends on which insurance from which company.
Retinol is covered by health insurance.
Since an insurance policy is a contract, that which is covered is defined by the language of the contract. If there is not express coverage, sometimes it can be argued that th…e language is ambiguous and that the ambiguity must be construed in favor of the insured (that is, in a way that finds that there is coverage). That said, essentially a mattress is a mattress. If your motivation for getting this one is ease or comfort, rather than medical necessity, it seems that your odds are slim to none. However, if a medical professional has prescribed this for a covered medical condition, and will attest to its need, you may have a shot. Keep in mind, however, that in addition to provisions providing for coverage, insurance policies contain exclusions (items and conditions that are expressly not covered). It may turn out that the mattress falls squarely within an exclusion, such that coverage would not apply.
No; spin yes, flip no.
It was developed in Lexington,KY funded through NASA research in the 1970s. Astronauts used the material to reduce the G-force pressures placed on the body while in lift-off. …The foam is a proprietary material exclusive to Tempurpedic International. Many other companies have developed similar foam mattresses.
Tempur-pedic mattress are made of Tempur, an open-air cell foam that is able to evenly redistributes pressure. It has high density, high visco-elasticity and is temperature se…nsitive.
A tempur pedic mattress is extremely comfortable. They have things to where you can adjust the softness or the firmness of you side of the bed. I would love to have one and tr…y it out for myself.
Be very careful with things like therapy, outpatient phyciatric care and such things like this. Read your policy and if you have any questions call your agent or the 800 numbe…r on the back of your insurance card for clarification. Usually there is a section within the 800 number for questions about benefits. Often tiimes there are limitation as to the number of visits per year that are paid under your health insurance plan. After the maximum number of visits is reached the plan will not pay for any more visits and you will be charged and billed directly from the therapists for the excess charges.
