Question- How often and when should I wear the GAME CHANGER?
The GAME CHANGER is intended to get patients back to as much activity as possible. We recommend the first week that the brace is worn between 30 and 60 Minutes the first day and gradually increased as comfortable each day thereafter.
Usual activities such as riding your bike, taking walks, gardening, tennis, golf, or any other activity that patients wish to engage in should be done as long as the patient remains comfortable and pain free. The goal of the GAME CHANGER is to help patients get their life back.

Question - Are physicians permitted to bill private insurers for DME and, if so, are there any specific processes physicians must follow to do so?
Answer - Physicians who have obtained a NPI number are permitted to bill private insurers for DME. To bill a private insurer as a participating provider, physicians typically must complete an application process and enter into a participating provider agreement with the insurer. Physicians may also bill a private insurer as a non-participating provider (i.e., without going through the application process and signing the participating provider agreement). However, non-participating providers typically are reimbursed at a lower rate by the insurer and some insurers will not reimburse non-participating providers directly (i.e., the insurer reimburses the patient and the physician must seek payment from the patient). more info: https://nppes.cms.hhs.gov/#/
