We correspond with therapists through faxes in order to keep the therapist up to date on the patient’s order.

What if my patient receives a product that does not fit correctly, requires higher/lower compression, or requires a change of fabric?

At Luna Medical we are here to assist you in providing clinically efficacious products to best meet your patient’s needs. If the product does not fit properly or there is a problem with the fabric used, we will work closely with the manufacturer to remake the garment with revised measurements or replace the product with a different fabric or compression.

If the returned merchandise is determined to be defective, the manufacturers, at their discretion, may replace the merchandise. A Return Merchandise Authorization number (RA number) must be obtained prior to any returned requests. Luna Medical will provide a return authorization packet to the patient consisting of an RA letter, shipping label, and a prepaid FedEx label. Our customers have a thirty day period after receiving a product to contact us, otherwise, we have lost our lead-time from the manufacturers to request a return authorization.

Do you mail out reminder cards to patients so they know when it is time to reorder their daytime, elastic support? As you know, the elastic support is no longer providing adequate compression after it loses its elasticity.

Yes, we will send out reminders to patients as to when they are eligible to reorder their daytime, elastic support products according to their insurance policy guidelines.

Who obtains prescriptions from the referring physician to file your claims?

Luna Medical handles all paperwork. After our clinical history form and product information form are received, we have the necessary documentation to facilitate a certificate of medical necessity to the referring physician for signature.
