Prescribing HFCWO and processing claims

Welcome to the Prescription and Reimbursement Center. Here you’ll find forms and information needed by both clinicians and payers to prescribe the SmartVest® Airway Clearance System from Electromed and to process insurance claims for high frequency chest wall oscillation (HFCWO), also known as high frequency chest compression (HFCC).

Among the resources available here are:

  • Forms and sample documentation. The few key forms, some of which can be filled out online, that need to be faxed to Electromed, Inc. in order to initiate authorization with an insurer and ultimately gain reimbursement from payers. Also provided here is a sample Prescription and Certificate of Medical Necessity form, to illustrate the form’s proper completion.
  • Clinical indications for HFCWO. An overview of the clinical considerations that typically enter into prescribing HFCWO, plus important details on HFCWO contraindications.
  • Prescription and reimbursement guidance. A summary of the requirements Medicare, Medicaid, the Veterans Health Administration and many private insurers apply when considering HFCWO prescriptions for coverage and reimbursement.

Electromed employs specialists to help clinicians, patients, caregivers and payers navigate the documentation and communication needed to prescribe and authorize for reimbursement on the SmartVest System. For questions and assistance, contact Electromed’s Reimbursement Team.
