      • Neuromuscular Disorders (e.g. Spinal muscular atrophy)
      • Family history of SIDS

    This list covers likely indications for a BabySat prescription, but is not exclusive. If these or similar items are relevant to you or your baby, you may request a prescription from your healthcare provider by following the simple steps below.

    How to Get a Prescription for BabySat

    Step 1: Talk to Your Provider

    Schedule a visit with your pediatrician, family doctor, or pediatric specialist to discuss your infant's needs. Let them know why you believe BabySat is the right option for your baby, especially if your reason is related to the relevant conditions listed above.

    Step 2: Be Prepared + Share Your Concerns

    Bring any relevant information about your infant's health, such as medical records or test results. This helps, especially if you have a new relationship with a medical provider, and helps your doctor understand your baby's situation better.

    Step 3: Get the Prescription

    If your Doctor agrees BabySat is the right option, they will write a prescription for you. 

    Step 4: Get BabySat

    Once you have your prescription, visit our BabySat page and click “I have a prescription”. You will be directed to our Medical Equipment partner, Adapt Health. Have your medical insurance card ready, and a form of government-issued ID for any verification process needed. Follow the prompts provided on the AdaptHealth site. You should expect that your prescription for BabySat will go through a prior authorization process with your insurance company. AdaptHealth will contact you regarding the outcome of that process and what options you have if BabySat is not covered. After your information and prescription have been validated by our partner, you should receive your product by mail in as soon as 48 hours. *Shipping times may vary.
