    Most insurance policies provide for "durable Backhero Posture Corrector Review medical equipment" which is what an interferential or tens unit is classified as. The monthly premiums that were being paid entitles the patient to the reasonable costs for the unit. Any out of pocket costs are truly an "add on" to costs that were paid for and should be covered. If you ever purchase a portable tens or interferential pain machine out of pocket, that might produce the effect of not having the supplies such as tens electrodes, batteries, tens replacement cables, rechargers, AC adaptors, not covered as there would be no record of the insurance company ever purchasing the unit therefore there will be no coverage for the tens supplies needed to maintain continual operation. There is no way that that could be a good thing. It could be enough reason for avoiding doing it at all. The cost of ancillary supplies for chronic pain such as Tiger Balm patches, arnica patches, Sombra, BioFreeze, FlexAll, DMSO are not covered. Those supplies are generally covered by insurance, including Medicare and some state agencies such as Medicaid, that are used for the condition the interferential or tens pain machine was prescribed for. This would also include skin care products in case the adhering electrodes cause some minor skin irritation to the patient.
