We know the process is long and difficult but we are ready for that challenge. It is critical that the Side Sleeper Pillow be offered under Medicare.
Agoura Hills, CA (PRWEB) September 08, 2011
Comfort Quest, Inc., the manufacturer of the Side Sleeper Pillow designed to help women manage their pain and sleep well after all types of chest surgery, announced it has submitted an application to Medicare for approval as a DME product.
The Side Sleeper Pillow was designed specifically for surgical recovery or breast pain relief. Most women experience breast pain after several types of chest surgery. The recovery pillow will help patients after surgeries such as Augmentation, Cancer, Open Heart, Mastectomy, or Lumpectomy.
Once accepted by Medicare as an approved product, the Side Sleeper Recovery Pillow will be paid for all Medicare eligible customers. The application process is expected to take three to six months.
“We are eagerly looking forward to our acceptance as a Medicare approved product,” said Ben Kass President of Comfort Quest, Inc. “We know the process is long and difficult but we are ready for that challenge. It is critical that the Side Sleeper Pillow be offered under Medicare.”
Once accepted by Medicare the company will leverage that status to approach medical insurance carriers to pay for the pillow as well.
The breast support pillow has a web and retail price of $59.97 until October 1, 2011. The price will go up to $69.95 in October. Comfort Quest already has a network of plastic surgeons and certified fitters in the United States and Canada which will supply their patients with the breast pillows or direct them to Comfort Quest’s web site at http://www.mycomfortquest.com.
Comfort Quest, Inc is a southern California based corporation located in Agoura Hills. The company intends to continue to develop post surgery products for women. The Side Sleeper Pillow is the company’s first product in this category.
