FAQ

*Will My Insurance Cover the Paramedical Products?
Most EHC insurances cover paramedical products. We recommend that you consult your insurer for further details specifying your coverage amount, prescription and dispensing requirements, and reimbursement documentation before purchasing.
*Can the Cost of Medical Products Be Electronically Billed to the Insurer?
In Ontario, none of the medical product costs can be directly submitted to the client’s insurance by the processing clinic. It must be submitted by the customer either online or by mail for reimbursement. This means that clients need to pay the full amount at Yonge Rehab clinic while making the purchase. We will provide you with the corresponding paper documents for submission.

       Compression Stockings

      Compression stockings (or socks) are specialized hosiery that are designed to improve blood flow in the legs by applying graduated pressure to the leg muscles and veins. They will help improve circulation and decrease lower extremity pain and swelling. The greatest degree of compression is exerted at the ankle, with the level of compression gradually decreasing up the garment. The pressure gradient promotes upward flow of blood toward the heart instead of pooling or refluxing downward to the foot and superficial veins. The gradient compression reduces the diameter of major veins, which increases the velocity and volume of blood, assisting the skeletal muscle pump to facilitate venous return and
      improve lymphatic drainage.

        The benefits of compression stockings

        The benefits of compression stockings include Improved blood circulation, Reduced leg swelling, Reduced risk of blood clots, Relief of leg pain and discomfort, Improved athletic performance and recovery, Management of chronic venous insufficiency. Overall, compression stockings can provide benefits for people with various leg and circulation-related conditions or needs.

        Common conditions that are treated with Graded Compression Stockings:

        o Venous insufficiency
        o Deep vein thrombosis
        o History of blood clots
        o Varicose veins
        o Orthostatic/postural hypotension (Low blood pressure)
        o Post-surgical swelling
        o Professions requiring prolonged standing or sitting (ie: nurses, flight attendants)
        o Frequent travelers (on planes, trains etc)
        o As with Custom Orthotics, each insurance plan is different. Please contact your insurance
        provider for their reimbursement requirements.
        There are different grades of compression:
        Low compression, non-medical grade 8-15mmHg, 15-20mmHg
        Moderate to high compression, medical grade: 20-30mmHg, 30-40mmHg, 40-50mmHg
        The common grade that is covered by insurance is 20-30mmHg.
