Compression therapy products help to minimize leg fatigue, reduce swelling, and improve overall circulation. At Letourneau’s Compounding Pharmacy, we offer a variety of compression therapy options, the most common of which are compression stockings. For severe circulation problems or for post-op recovery, a doctor may provide a prescription to determine which compression therapy product is appropriate for you.
For any compression therapy product, leg measurements are required to determine the correct size for the patient. Typically, we will take those measurements ourselves, and we always have staff available to do so, and no appointment is required! Please let us know if the patient is unable to visit us in person and we can forward measuring instructions.
Certain compression therapy products can be eligible for insurance coverage. Coverage will vary from plan to plan and sometimes will depend on the diagnosis provided by the physician. For Medicare members, the prescription must be for a 30-40MMHG level of compression, and the diagnosis must be a wound in order for LCP to submit a claim for your reimbursement.
