Where does Scomed fit into your big picture?
Helping physicians is not just a job for us. Rather, it is a purpose which inspires the team at Scomed to go above and beyond every day. We feel that we are an extension of your practice. Knowing that we have a hand in helping your patient brings us peace-of-mind and a great deal of satisfaction. And, because we handle the grunt-work, your practice can fit more time in for patients.
Prescribing equipment has never been easier.
Scomed works with your practice to tailor a suitable working relationship that works best for you. To streamline the process, a Patient Care Coordinator works with your practice so that communication is seamless between patient, practice, and Scomed. It’s easy to get the process started. Simply fax your prescription to Scomed along with a completed patient enrollment form. Once the prescription is received, you can be assured your patient is in good hands. We handle:
- Verification and coordination of insurance plans
- Management of the pre-certification process
- Submission of Letters/Certificates of Medical Necessity
- Processing and billing workers compensation and motor vehicle accident claims
- Communication with patient regarding co-payment
- Working with legal professionals when required
- Equipment fittings by an experienced BOC- and ABC-certified orthotic fitter
- Helping patients with questions they have regarding their equipment
- Conducting follow-ups to ensure patient compliance, satisfaction, and optimum product performance
- Billing and collections from insurance companies
Flexibility and convenience for you and your patient.
You can choose whether to utilize our services on a referral basis, purchase products at wholesale, or a combination of the two. We offer competitive wholesale pricing and flexibility by tailoring our services based on your philosophy and revenue goals. You can refer your patients to Scomed and let us handle their equipment needs. If you choose to set up a DME business right in your office, we can help you get it off the ground and manage it. Contact us to help design a program that fits best for you.
Scomed is flexible in working with the patient to schedule fittings, demonstrations on use and care of equipment, and follow-ups. We provide these services in the comfort of the patient’s home, at your office, or at our convenient Exton location, which is a Medicare Accredited Facility, to ensure quality patient care.
With so many options and brands of medical equipment and devices, its difficult to know what’s best for the treatment of your patient. Because we are certified orthotic fitters and are continuously learning about cutting-edge products and treatments, we can assist you in making the right decision for prescribing equipment. And, more options means better care for your patient.
Our focus is on helping you help your patient. We are highly educated and experienced in physiological subject matter so that we can provide the highest level of service in our industry. And, because we’re well-versed in many different brands of equipment, we know one device that Manufacturer A offers may work better for your patient than the device Manufacturer B offers, so we give sound recommendations on which brand would best fit the needs of your patient. Some of the most common ailments we are experienced in helping to treat are chronic pain, including joint and back pain, osteoarthritis, ligament conditions, back and spinal injuries.

We’re invested in the success of your practice.
By providing an unsurpassed level of service for thirty years, Scomed has developed strong, trusting relationships with the professionals we serve. We value these longstanding alliances and believe that they are essential to the success of our business, as they have built a network of esteemed healthcare and legal professionals who turn to us time and again to assist with the medical equipment needs of a patient or client. Not only are we focused on service, the well-being of these patients is central to why we do what we do. The partners in our network are confident in our ability to deliver on our reputation for outstanding service and compassionate care.
When it comes down to establishing a good reputation of your own and getting word out to the public, some marketing tactics just don’t cut it. For instance, the cost and effort involved in direct mail is simply not the best way to find new patients. One of the best ways to gain trust of potential patients is through word-of-mouth publicity. Best of all, it’s cost-free. Apply the same idea to your network of colleagues – it starts with a reputable community of professionals. Having communicated with our partners over many years, we have found that some of our proven strategies involve face-time with attorneys and physicians whom you can build a network of solid referrals from, and in turn, solidify those relationships by referring in your network.
We help forge relationships that impact the growth of your practice by conducting regional networking events, small group, and individual meetings on a regular basis. We know that networking is an integral part of any successful marketing strategy and it is a large part of our service to you. We take the time to start conversations that help all of our businesses thrive.
