The psychological effects of springtime arrive in multitude. Birds are finally chirping, dormant buds are in bloom and everyone wants to head outside to bask in the long-absent sunshine.

 

To help anyone with mobility issues venture out safely and securely, Savon Medimart offers an expansive selection of scooters, wheelchairs, lift chairs, walkers, crutches and canes, along with the expertise behind the equipment. They also offer hospital-grade home medical supplies, including oxygen therapy, support stockings, pain management and a special department that sells lingerie and swimwear for post-mastectomy women.

 

Real Communication 

“We maintain a commitment to the health and well-being of our customers, and that promise is the secret to our success,” says General Manager Robin Savon-Ivany, a second-generation Savon following in her parents’ footsteps. “Our highly trained staff members ensure accurate communication and a high level of comfort and trust when working with customers.”

 

Additionally, she notes, they service what they sell, which most other places do not do.

 

Say No to High Deductibles

Robin says they provide a cash-only outlet that serves the growing segment of the population with no health insurance or unreasonably high deductibles.

 

“Rather than pay these deductibles and co-pays on already dramatically overpriced items at a traditional medical equipment supplier, you can buy directly from Savon Medimart at far lower prices,” she points out. “It’s a smart alternative to the hassle and expense of dealing with insurance companies.”

 

She further explains that large insurance conglomerates control what medical equipment suppliers can charge and what the reimbursement rate will be on the products.

 

“Contracts with insurance companies have forced suppliers to charge much higher prices so that insurance companies remain competitive,” she says. “Savon Medimart has opted to eliminate insurance contracts in order to give the savings back to our customers by drastically reducing prices, thus saving our customers a great deal of money. Why pay more money for co-insurance fees when you can purchase discounted items for much less out of pocket?”

 

Know your insurance options before you hand over your insurance card to purchase your medical equipment and supplies, Robin advises. And don’t be afraid to ask the right questions.

 

“Know how much your insurance will pay for a product and ask a medical equipment supplier how much they will be billing for those products,” she says. “Once you have the information you need, you can call Savon Medimart to discover how much less you could be spending on the identical products.”
