Securing Insurance Coverage for a BioMat

One of the most frequent questions we get is about securing insurance coverage for a BioMat. Since the professional-size BioMat is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), there are some insurance companies and types of insurance who will cover the BioMat. The types of insurance claims that are being paid include personal injury protection (PIP), Workman’s Compensation and Flexible Medical. You may find these codes helpful if/when you are submitting the BioMat for insurance coverage:

  • 510K No: K072534
  • HCPCS Code: E0221
  • FDA Medical Device Est. Number: 2954299
  • Non-Participating Provider Number: 22852-8

And here’s specific steps to follow if you are submitting bio-mats to insurance for coverage:

  1. Have your doctor write a prescription recommending one of the BioMat products, specifying the name and item size. (If your doctor is not familiar with the technology of far infrared heat and negative ions, providing this to your health care professional/provider will be very helpful so that they can understand the beneficial properties to help you heal.) Also, note that the BioMat pro is FDA-approved and may be most likely covered by insurance.
  2. Your sponsor will need to complete the Richway Order Form as usual, filling in the patient’s name as the applicant. Be sure to write “Medical Receipt Requested” across the top of the form in large letters and it is important to leave the payment information blank on the form.
  3. Fax the order form to 808-597-1651 with attention to Doreen at Richway International. To ensure that the fax is received, follow up with a phone call.
  4. Richway will supply the patient with a Medical Receipt. Then you (the patient) submit the medical receipt, the doctor’s prescription and all appropriate health insurance claim forms to your insurance company. Be sure to keep all copies of documents.
  5. It is the patient’s responsibility to follow up with the insurance company regarding the approval status.
  6. If approved, the insurance company will send a check payable to Fuji Bio Science, Inc. (Richway International’s parent company). Be sure to reference the Richway International (RI) number on the check. (This number is located on the top, right hand corner of the order form.)
  7. After Richway receives the check and the order is processed, the product(s) will be shipped to the patient.

Please note:  the above process takes time (estimated at six to twelve months). If you need/want the BioMat immediately, you may prefer to purchase it outright and submit the purchase to your insurance company/provider. This allows you to use the BioMat while you are waiting for the insurance company to determine if/how much they will pay for it. Regardless if you purchase immediately or wait until the insurance company decides whether or not to pay for the Richway BioMat, there is no guarantee the insurance company will reimburse you. BioMatInc.com does not guarantee insurance company satisfaction in either situation. It is only our responsibility to inform you of the options so you can make the best choice for your health and life.
