Important Information for Ordering Compression Stockings for NYSHIP Insured Customers

Welcome to All American Medical Supply Corp. in Massapequa, NY

Thank you for considering us for your compression garment needs. If you’ve been prescribed compression socks or stockings, here’s what you need to know:

Medical Compression Garment Options We Offer

We provide Off-the-Shelf (OTS) compression products, including:

  • Knee-high compression stockings

  • Thigh-high compression stockings

  • Waist-high compression hose

  • Maternity compression hose

  • Chaps style compression garments

  • Arm compression sleeves


Please note that we do not provide custom-made compression garments, burn garments, mastectomy fashions, or compression bras.

Notes on Compression Garment Levels and Insurance Coverage

  • Most insurance carriers do not pay for light or mild compression socks (8 to 20 mmHg).

  • Typically, the lowest compression grade paid for by insurance is 18 to 30 mmHg, which is more commonly listed as 20-30 mmHg from manufacturing brands.

  • Regardless of what other suppliers may have done in the past, we operate with standards of integrity at All American Medical Supply Corp., and we cannot bill your insurance for reimbursement for any compression garment with less than 20-30mmHG.

NYSHIP Coverage for Compression Garments and Quantity Limits

NYSHIP allows an insured customer to receive up to 4 units (2 pairs) of compression stockings or socks on any given day. This is the maximum allowance one can receive per day.


At All American Medical Supply Corp., you may be able to receive a 3-month supply per order. We can send up to 12 units of your compression garments every 3 months (90 days) if prescribed and medically necessary. This must be documented by your prescribing healthcare professional.

Getting Started With Us: What We Need From You

  1. Identification and Insurance Info: Have your driver’s license or state-issued ID and health insurance information ready. If Medicare is primary and NYSHIP is secondary, both ID numbers are needed. This is because we will need to send your insurance claim to Medicare before forwarding it to the Empire Plan.

  2. Valid, Recent Prescription From Your Doctor: A recent prescription should specify the medical compression of no less than 20-30 mmHG and include the number of pairs needed per order.

  3. Medical Documentation: We may also need to receive documentation from your prescribing doctor which validates the need and use of medical-grade compression garments.

We make it easy to get started! Just reach out to us today, and our representatives can help you find the right stockings for your needs.

Once we’ve received your order and everything is complete, we can send out your first order.

How to Determine Your Compression Garment Size

Haven’t been measured in a while? You can come by our office to be measured so we can ensure you have the proper size and get the maximum therapeutic benefit from your compression stockings.


If that’s not an option, you can get your doctor, a family member, caregiver, yourself, or another appropriate person to measure you with a sewing tape measure. We can inform you how to do it and which measurements may be needed based on what your healthcare professional has prescribed.

Completing Your Order with All American Medical Supply Corp.

Once we have a valid written order (Rx), supporting medical documentation, and your measurements, we can begin processing your order.

Prior to finalizing and shipping out your order, we will confirm your desired colors and styles, and have you sign the necessary insurance forms via Docusign or email.

Once that is completed, your order will go out and you will have it within 2-3 business days.
