    DENISON, TX -- "I recycle,” said Vincent Shores, Denison resident. “Pretty much anything I have in the house that's recyclable, I recycle it.” Recycling hasn't always been an option for people who live in Denison, but last year the city started a new program that offers curbside pick-up. "I just need about two or three more bins actually,” said Shores. “I have to borrow my neighbor's."

Insurance companies are finally recognizing the value of electrical nerve stimulation and will be covering the costs of many TENS units.

Farmingville, NY, United States of America – December 24, 2013 /MarketersMedia/ —

Insurance companies have discovered that alleviating pain through the use of electrical nerve stimulation has many medical benefits for their clients. Under new guidelines, Medicare will now be paying for TENS units for some patients. It has taken many years for insurance companies to understand that pain management is a very important part of healthcare. As part of this coverage, Medicare will specifically be covering the cost of TENS units for patients who are enrolled in a clinical study and suffer from chronic lower back pain, as well as instances where the patient has chronic intractable pain that is not lower back pain, and for cases of acute post-operative pain.

According to truMedic, many people in the United States suffer from chronic lower back pain. Medicare’s decision to cover TENS units and related supplies used for chronic low back pain, however, is predicated on participation in an approved clinical trial program. There is also an extensive list of what the approved diagnoses for lower back pain can be in order to qualify for the TENS unit.

According to Gordon Kelley with Medicare, “to qualify to receive a TENS unit when you have chronic intractable pain, the pain must be present for at least three months and you must have tried several other appropriate medical treatments. These treatments must have been ineffective and the pain that you are suffering must be a type that is accepted as being responsive to the TENS therapy.” There are certain restrictions with this program. Users must be monitored by their doctor and every two months they will be reevaluated. At the end of the two months they may bill for the purchase of the TENS units if the physician has determined that the user is likely to benefit from continued use.

Coverage of TENS units for postoperative pain must be billed as a rental and will only be covered for 30 days from the date of surgery. Again, the patient must be monitored by a physician and at the end of the 30 days. If the physician determines that the patient is likely to benefit from continued use, the p[atient may bill for the purchase of the TENS unit.

For the patients who are unable to have their TENS products covered by insurance, many TENS products, including truMedic’s Electronic Pulse Massager PL-009, can be purchased from Amazon. Like those covered through Medicare, truMedic’s unit is able to provide pain relief in the comfort of a home.
