Are the Ben-Guard products covered by private or public insurance?

Ben-Guard and its pediatric hospital partners are working toward establishing insurance coverage for its products, using published clinical data and new study concepts. Currently, individual claims submitted by hospitals or families for our products will be handled case-by-case and may be all or partially covered, by your plan under existing HCPCS/CPT catheter securement codes. Please contact the patient’s healthcare team or insurance provider for specific inquiries.

We accept Healthcare Savings Account payments for our products, which should qualify under most insurance plans.

Ben-Guard has a generous patient support program for those without insurance or a policy that won’t cover particular medically necessary items. A Letter of Medical Necessity may be required from your Healthcare Provider.

Are the Ben-Guard products registered and have they been approved for use?

Our safety device is registered as an FDA Class 1 Medical Device, which deems the product is safe for use and will cause no harm to the patient. This process requires a strenuous review by the FDA, routine submissions in regard to product enhancements or changes and a significant financial investment by the Company.

What sizes, styles and colors are available?

The Ben-Guard catheter safety products are available in a bodysuit and a tank top in navy, light blue, red and pink colors. Standard sizes are 0-3 months to 4T in the bodysuit and 12-18 months to small adult sizes in the tank top. We are happy to discuss other unique size requests.

Is Ben-Guard involved in pediatric clinical studies?

We are working with Pediatric Hospitals and Charities around the country, discussing funding and pilot study concepts to measure clinically impactful criteria for publication.

Will your products accommodate multiple tubing scenarios in children?

Yes, our products are designed to accommodate Central Venous Catheters, G/J-tubes, and other tubing devices, pumps and batteries, simultaneously when necessary. Ben-Guard continues to develop additional solutions to address catheter-related complications for children and adults.

What is Ben-Guard’s product made of?

66% Rayon derived from bamboo; 28% cotton; 6% Spandex

How many Ben-Guard safety items are recommended for each child?

The risk of pediatric tubing complication is constant as long as the device is placed in the body.  For this reason, the Ben-Guard products are designed to be comfortably and effectively worn 24/7, as a base or outer layer. For this safety reason and to assure that a clean product is always worn over the insertion site, it is recommended that each child is issued a minimum of 3 Ben-Guard products.

Product durability/handling recommendations?

Ben-Guard’s products are washable and can be cleaned by home or hospital laundry, though may wear out more quickly when routinely cleaned in an industrial machine, due to the spandex in the material.

Our products have been laundered in a certified hospital laundry facility (per IDPH Standards), a minimum of 10 times. Aside from slight color fading and shrinkage (due to the spandex and only on the first cleaning), the testing showed no sign of deterioration to the snaps, straps and water-resistant front pocket. 

Specific testing results will be provided upon request.

How long will it take to receive Ben-Guard products?

Products are shipped within 7 business days. Please let us know if you have an urgent delivery need and we will do our best to accommodate.

Can I submit a customized product order or inquiry to Ben-Guard?

Yes, we are happy to discuss customized product designs that would accommodate a unique medical need for your child. Please contact us at info@ben-guard.com.

How can pediatric hospitals get the Ben-Guard products for patients?

We understand the Value Analysis and approval processes can differ significantly among Pediatric Hospitals, often including clinical, supply chain and patient safety personnel.

What types of payment does Ben-Guard accept?

We accept all major credit cards, as well as Healthcare Savings cards and Hospital Purchase Orders. Please let us know if you prefer to use a different method of payment.
