“This gives our products instant credibility when the health care industry officially recognizes our products worthy of medical reimbursement.
Agoura Hills, CA (PRWEB) October 05, 2011
Comfort Quest, Inc., manufacturer of the Side Sleeper Pillow designed to help women manage their pain and sleep well after all types of chest surgery, announced it was awarded a Medicare code by Noridian Administrative Services which will allow patients to seek reimbursement from Medicare and their insurance coverage.
The Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) is a set of health care procedure codes based on the American Medical Association’s current procedural terminology. The HCPCS code assigned to the Side Sleeper Pillow is E0190. The code is for products which fit into the category of “Positioning cushion/pillow/wedge, any shape or size.”
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.
Comfort Quest had been working with Medicare for several months to earn this status.
“We are thrilled about our product being part of the Medicare and health insurance system,” said Ben Kass President of Comfort Quest, Inc. “This gives our products instant credibility when the health care industry officially recognizes our products worthy of medical reimbursement. This is a huge step in our company’s short history.”
The breast support pillow has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $125. It is currently offered for $69.95 on the company’s web site as a special introduction sale. 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 Side Sleeper Pillow 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.
