Below are several phrases taken from letters of medical necessity that have helped result in BeasyTrans reimbursements. Each of these phrases has been selected to illustrate the general theme and tone of how other medical professionals have described their patient’s needs to require a BeasyTrans. You may want to incorporate these examples in your letter.
