As a special preview of the LA Baby Show, coming up on the weekend of November 5-6, we have interviewed or profiled many of the Show’s vendors and participants. You can read all about them on this Show blog, but of course the real fun is experiencing the Baby Show in person.
Tickets to the Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual, and can be purchased here.
There are a myriad of things that parents need to worry about – medical supplies should not be one of them. Edgepark Medical Supplies is a company nearly 90 years old that makes the process to receive the necessary products easy and simple, including breast pumps and accessories.
We spoke with a member of the Edgepark team, Robert Recker, to learn more.
For someone unfamiliar with Edgepark, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
At Edgepark, our mission is to provide our customers with the best answer to their medical supply needs. As a longtime industry leader in the home delivery of medical supplies, Edgepark offers nearly 40,000 products, including insurance-covered breast pumps and accessories, ostomy, diabetes, wound care, urological, incontinence supplies and much more. We contract with more than 700 manufacturers, so customers have access to the brands they prefer, and health care professionals recommend.
We simplify the ordering process for our customers by verifying their insurance coverage, obtaining their prescription and handling all of their paperwork. Depending on the product, we accept Medicare, Managed Medicaid and select State Medicaid, and over 1,300 health plans nationwide, to help customers save money.
We conveniently ship orders right to the customer’s door, for free, with shipping time of 1-2 business days to 99% of the U.S. population. To ensure customers do not run out of supplies, we send them convenient reminders when it’s time for their next order, then confirm their supply needs before shipping.
What is the background of Edgepark? When did it start, and how has it evolved since then?
Edgepark opened in 1928 as a small, family-owned pharmacy in Ohio and has grown to become a trusted provider of home-delivered medical products, including breast pumps and accessory products. Our decades of experience allow us to offer customers an extensive selection of supplies and brands, comprehensive insurance coverage and hassle-free ordering. We remain focused on our original values – a commitment to deliver caring service to each and every customer.
What are the most popular and/or newest products from Edgepark?
As a leading distributor of medical supplies, Edgepark offer the latest and most innovative products (nearly 40,000 total) from over 700 manufacturers, including insurance-covered breast pumps and accessories.
What sets Edgepark apart from other medical supply companies?
Edgepark’s extensive breadth of product choice, access to a comprehensive network of insurance coverage, and genuine commitment to helping our customers and their loved ones live their best lives, help set us apart from other medical supply providers.
What can parents expect to see from Edgepark at the LA Baby Show?
Parents, and in particular expectant mothers, can expect to receive an invaluable education on how to make the most out of their insurance benefits, consistent with their health plan guidelines, when ordering their breast pump and supplies. Under the Affordable Care Act, most health insurance plans are required to cover breast pumps, which means expectant moms may receive their breast pump for little or no out-of- pocket cost. Edgepark makes the ordering process convenient and hassle-free, by handling the insurance and prescription paperwork for moms, and then conveniently shipping their items for free, right to their home.
