Please use the following checklist to start this insurance process for all insurances: private, Medicaid and Medicare. Please print the forms, and have your physician complete the documents that they are required to complete.
Once you have all completed documents, first contact your current DME supplier and ask them if they can carry your Liquid Hope or Nourish for you, since you will be changing formula. If they cannot, please fax ALL documents to one of your state suppliers from our DME List. If there are no state suppliers able to provide the formula please reference our National DME Supplier List.
PLEASE NOTE: Make sure all forms are completed with necessary signatures. Submitting all of the documents at once will ensure your request is processed in a timely manner.
