Important Medicare and Insurance Information

(Click here for printable version)

Medicare claims MUST be submitted by the company from which the purchase was made. After we have received your payment, we will submit your Medicare form, and you will be reimbursed directly by Medicare. Medicare provides partial reimbursement for breast forms and mastectomy bras, regardless of when you had surgery. Check with Medicare to see what the allowable is in your area.

If you have gained or lost a significant amount of weight since you last ordered, you may need to order bras and/or prosthetics in a new size. Ask your doctor for a letter confirming your weight loss and need for new sizes. We can submit the letter to Medicare so that you will be reimbursed for additional purchases of bra/breast forms in your new size.

All pocketed bras, pocketed camis and breast forms in "tlc" that are reimbursed by Medicare are marked with an MC symbol.

A Medicare Claim Request Form is sent with all orders. Please fill out the Form and return it to our us with your doctor's prescription, dated on or before the date of your order.

If you have any questions, call us at 1-800-850-9445. Inquiries about reimbursement should be made directly to your Medicare office. Please allow 3-4 weeks for reimbursement. "tlc" cannot guarantee Medicare reimbursement, which is based on Medicare’s assessment of the patient's needs. Please note: some private insurance companies will reimburse for wigs/hairpieces if your doctor writes a prescription specifying a "necessary cranial prosthesis."
