How do I send my prescription?
You will be prompted before you add the product to your cart. It will ask whether or not you will provide a prescription or if you already have provided BV Medical with a prescription. You can either fill out our Letter of Medical Necessity and upload it, upload a file of the prescription, or upload a photo of the prescription. Please upload when prompted on the product page.

What is a Letter of Medical Necessity?
A Letter of Medical Necessity may be filled out by your physician as an alternative to their own prescription format. This is not required. The Letter of Medical Necessity asks for Patient Information, Physician Information, and other relevant information. Please note the codes next to the Treatment Devices/Supplies are the codes for the devices related to the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS). HCPCS is a collection of standardized codes that represent medical procedures, supplies, products, and services. The codes are used to facilitate the processing of health insurance claims by insurers.
