What can you tell me about reimbursement?
The following pertains primarily to the United States healthcare system. Clinicians practicing in other countries are encouraged to forward information related to their experiences with Rx Box® reimbursement. We will publish this information as it becomes available.

Whether home programming with paper handouts or digitally with Rx Box®, the process of instruction, preparation of appropriate materials, and review of them with your patient, remains similar. CPT codes for therapeutic exercise (97110) and therapeutic activity (97530) cover the provision of home program instructions by individuals licensed by a particular state to perform such services.

Rx Box® Patient can legitimately be classified as patient education material. Reimbursement for educational supplies (CPT code 99071) varies by insurer. The decision to reimburse will be made based on the available benefits in a patient's insurance policy. Use of this code may necessitate that you substantiate your claim with data and / or endorsements that differentiate digital home programming from traditional, paper-based models. There are several well-researched reference documents and petition templates available to clinics and patients interested in pursuing this mode of reimbursement. Click here to forward your browser to our document library and download page.

Another method of recovering costs associated with prescribing Rx Box® content is to request out of pocket payment from the patient. However, given a low price-per-unit and tremendous potential for improving outcomes, many clinics will opt to consider Rx Box® Patient a cost of treatment and not bill the patient or his/her insurance company.
