Collateral Damage & Percussion Vests

thumperguy, when I inquired about having a percussion vest, the nurse said it was too expensive. I am confused because I have insurance! Is it difficult to get a vest? This gunk will not loosen and I am losing hope. Thank-you, for any help you can be. Does it really break it up?

Saw your question. My vest has been great for breaking up the congestion, am so glad I got it. It should be covered by insurance with a doctor's order. The DME company you chose (durable medical equipment) will check and let you know the co-payment and cost to you. I don't know why the nurse would say that. I would pursue obtaining an order and go from there and good luck!

Saw your post and concur with others. With a doctors order insurance does cover it less any co-pay, if applicable. I’ve used one for three years and do believe it helps somewhat. All the little things we do to help ourselves add up to improvement with fingers crossed and God’s blessing. Wishing you well.

I just got a Vest last month and it was covered 100% by insurance. Your doctor will have to order it.
