the latest update from our 2018 grant recipient, A Little Easier Recovery:
We just wanted to give you a quick update. We are very excited to tell you that we went ahead and added the prosthetic pocketing (like a bra component) to the Jacki to slide in under the existing reimbursement code called the “L” code, or more specifically L8015 that covers ‘External breast prosthesis garment, with mastectomy form, post mastectomy’
This way we can get this Jacki into the hospitals for all the women enduring a mastectomy. The code reimburses at $58.21 and we are in the process of figuring out all our new additional costs to the garment.
We designed the “new” improved Jacki and sent the prototype to our manufacturer in China for samples and costs. Next we have to do a one-sheet for the “L” code application (see attached).
We hired Cathy Fox, the reimbursement specialist, to streamline the application process.
We will keep you posted as we make further progress.
Your funds are helping us achieve the reimbursement status and our ultimate goal to help all who need the Jacki, without financial burden.
Thank you so much! Your grant is having a huge impact on both helping the patients now, and future patients as well.
We cannot thank you enough.
All our best, Cathy & Maureen
