Q. What should I do before I call Hope Home Medical Supply to order new supplies?
A. If you’re going to have insurance pay for the supplies, make sure you have copies of all your insurance cards and a doctor’s detailed prescription. If you’re not going to use insurance, then these items are usually unnecessary. A few supplies cannot be sold without a doctor’s detailed prescription.
