Steps to Streamline the process

Step 1:   Communicate with your doctor to obtain an assessment

The first step in securing the necessities for your loved one is to see your doctor and obtain a diagnosis. It’s crucial to have a proper assessment to determine your loved one’s needs.

Step 2:  Gather documentation and make sure we receive them

After obtaining the assessment from your doctor, ensure that you request documentation for your records. This documentation will be needed to obtain supplies and equipment through your insurance provider or governmental aid. You may be able to have the doctor send the form from their office. If that’s the case, be sure to follow up with either your doctor’s office or us to make sure we received the documents we need.

Step 3:   We can help make sure you’re covered

It’s important to ensure that you have the proper insurance forms needed. Don’t hesitate to communicate with your insurance provider to guarantee coverage for the medical supplies you need.

At MacPherson’s, we will require all necessary documentation for the equipment, supplies, or services you need to support your loved one’s autism spectrum disorder. That’s why it’s essential to provide us with all the required documentation.

Step 4:  Purchase or special order your approved necessities

Once we have received your documentation, we will work efficiently to obtain the equipment, supplies, or services that you need.

Sometimes, it may be necessary to submit special orders for specific equipment or supplies. In this case, it’s crucial to give ample time and provide documentation in a timely manner. This allows us to guarantee that we can obtain the necessary items for your loved one.

Step 5:  Ensure everything is in proper order.

After submitting orders or receiving supplies, ensure that the items are working, fit properly, and are being used correctly. Don’t hesitate to reach out to our team if you have any questions or concerns.

Step 6: Continue communicating with us.
