Beware of High Cost TENS Unit

The high cost of TENS unit seen by many personal injury clients.  Some clients involved in a collision will be seen by their physician and will be prescribed physical therapy and/or a TENS unit. A TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) unit is small portable battery operated device with electrodes to attach to the skin in the area where the source of pain is located. The unit sends an electrical signal to relieve pain.
Before your doctor orders your TENS unit or you sign an agreement to purchase one, find out what you would be paying for it. I have seen instances in which a provider has charged a patient an exuberant amount for a TENS unit ($650.00) that you could purchase yourself on line directly from a medical equipment supplier for under $100.00.

At the Law Offices of Edward A. Smith, we recommend that you find out what make and model your doctor recommends for your treatment regimen and compare the price of the TENS unit your provider sells with those of a reputable medical equipment supplier.  Oftentimes, you can find the same or similar model on line for a fraction of the cost.  Oftentimes, a client might be able to be reimbursed for the out of pocket expense under the medical payments coverage  of their own automobile policy.
