Affording multiple compressions sleeves

thegen37 Member Posts: 2

Hi all,

Curious how many sleeves everyone has at one time. I've been told that you should replace them every 6 months but I can't even imagine doing that with the cost! They say you should have multiple sleeves so when one is being washed, you have another. And then replace them after 6 months? Just curious what everyone's experience is with that.

    If you are Medicare eligible, they are supposed to be covering them now, otherwise you are on your own.

    My private/company-provided insurance covers six garments per year. I have found that there are some providers online that discount, so if you know your size, you can definitely save over manufacturers. I noticed that Bandages Plus discounts.
