Letters of Medical Necessity (or LMNs) are regularly required to get equipment approved through insurance. These letters provide a detailed description of the patient's condition(s) or diagnoses that make the requested equipment medically necessary for their well-being. 


Unfortunately, many children are denied prompt access to needed equipment because their therapist(s) are unsure of how to request them or have not provided the necessary information required for insurance approval.
