Insurance and Medicare Information

The company from which the purchase was made MUST submit Medicare claims.
After we have received your payment, we will submit your Medicare form and you will be reimbursed directly by Medicare.

Regardless of when you had surgery, Medicare provides partial reimbursement for breast forms and mastectomy bras. Currently the allowable is

  • 2 prostheses (1 silicone & 1 leisure/swimwear) every other year and
  • 4 mastectomy bras per year.

Please note, each Regional Medicare office might have a different allowable regarding breast forms and mastectomy bras.

Medicare and most insurance companies cover a percentage of pocketed bras and breast forms. If you carry supplemental medical insurance, please be sure to contact your insurance provider for reimbursement. If you are not eligible for Medicare, be sure to file a claim with your health insurance provider. If you reside in Ohio, please let us know. Our Shoppes might be a provider for your insurance company.

A Medicare information sheet will be sent with your order. If you are eligible for Medicare, fill it out and return it to us with your doctor's prescription, dated on or before the date of your purchase. Inquiries about reimbursement should be made through your Medicare office.
Please allow 8-12 weeks for reimbursement.

Ida-Joy Shoppes cannot guarantee Medicare reimbursement, which is based on Medicare's assessment of the patient's needs. For any questions regarding your insurance,
