Will Insurance Pay For A Weighted Blanket?

Posted by Laura LeMond on 19th Sep 2017

A Weighted Blanket may be covered by medical insurance. Of course every health care insurance plan is different. Some will not cover a weighted blanket, but some do. You will never know until you ask. Your doctor or pediatrician can write your child a prescription for a weighted blanket.

Weighted blankets can be considered durable medical equipment, and might be covered.

There are two steps to find out if your blanket will be covered:

1) Call your insurance company to see if they will cover the weighted blanket. Again you can obtain a prescription for a weighted blanket. You can also buy a weighted blanket and turn the receipt in to see if it will be reimbursed.

2) Find a durable medical equipment provider in your area and see if they will handle the insurance claim for you.
