|Is there public funding for MTM garments?|
In some cases. The Lympoedema Compression Garment Program, run by the Victoria Department of Human Services Aids and Equipment Program can provide funding for up to 6 garments per year for eligible pension holders and low-income earners. Funding is means tested. Click here for more information on the program.
|Can I purchase ready to wear (RTW) garments without a consultation?|
Garments with a compression level of 20-30mmHg or less can be purchased from the OPC Health online shop, or over the phone without a prescription or consultation. It is recommended that all patients purchase compression garments under the supervision of a therapist. It is important to monitor your condition and in some cases adjust the compression level as required.
Garments over 30mmHg cannot be ordered without a prescription and a consultation with an OPC Health Orthotist is required.
