Living with bronchiectasis? Contact your doctor to request a HRCT scan of your lungs and airways. Once you have been properly diagnosed, ask your doctor about HFCWO therapy via the SmartVest Airway Clearance System and start experiencing relief from your chronic symptoms.
Your SmartVest support team is here to help guide you through your prescription process and coordinate your vest’s reimbursement, so you can start enjoying the benefits of airway clearance the moment it arrives at your door.
We require minimal information to begin the prescription process. Ask your doctor to complete the required forms and fax all completed documents to Electromed at 866.758.5077 or they can submit via GoScripts.
As soon as I started using [SmartVest], I fell in love with it.
It’s easy to use, easy to transport, and very comfortable.
I went from using 30 to 40 tissues during the night to as few as 2.
I got one about two years ago. It does help to move the junk in my lungs.
Each form is designed with input from clinicians and payers to capture prescription details efficiently and accurately.
Our reimbursement team is available to assist your healthcare team throughout the documentation and reimbursement process to ensure your patients’ airway clearance vest is delivered safely to their door, and they’re able to start their HFCWO therapy immediately with the help from a personal Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT).
“I’ve actually had people call days later and cry because they had such wonderful results.” – Leslie Carpenter, CRT

In order for your insurance to cover SmartVest, you’ll need documented failure of a standard treatment, such as breathing techniques, to mobilize retained secretions.
Our mission is to help every patient enjoy life’s most important moments, one breath at a time. We offer financial assistance programs and will work with you to find a plan that best suits your situation. If you need and want a SmartVest, we will find a way to get you one.
I have traveled with SmartVest all over the U.S. and into South America on a cruise.
