Sample Letter of Medical Necessity for the Rifton Hygiene and Toileting System

Elena Noble, MPT | January 2014

A young girl and boy sit in the new Rifton Hygiene and Toileting System (HTS) while their caregiver chats with them.Our most recent offering, the Rifton Hygiene and Toileting System (HTS), facilitates toileting for people with disabilities while at the same time making the task of hygiene care easier for caregivers. Effective toileting not only maintains a healthy bowel and bladder, it makes an enormous difference on a child’s quality of life (as any parent can tell you).

In the past, many toileting routines and toilet training programs have been abandoned for want of the right adaptive equipment and because transferring the child to the toilet was so difficult. But unlike any previous adaptive toilets, the Rifton HTS provides opportunities for transfer and positioning that make toileting possible for even the most severely disabled child.

In this sample letter of medical necessity for the Rifton HTS, the key features that set this product apart and allow for effective toileting and transfer are presented to help you with your coverage applications. But please note that because this is a new product we’re not certain how insurance reviewers will respond. Any improvements you might have would be most welcome.
