This month we add two new features. The first is "Did You Know?". DYK will feature small tidbits of information that may not be widely known among our readers. We will also collect all DYK's on our website for future reference. Look for the link below the DYK section. The second feature is a new "Ask Kelly" column. With this column we are proud to introduce our Director of Customer Service, Kelly Bellemore. She has been with the company for over 12 years and is a wealth of knowledge. Kelly please introduce yourself!
Hello, my name is Kelly Bellemore and I would like introduce everyone to my very own column, "Ask Kelly!" Every month I will share with you a question or two. I would like to encourage anyone with a customer service question to submit their inquiry to me and while I will answer every question directly to the sender, I will also choose a question or two each month to feature in my "Ask Kelly" column. I will use the sender's first name where authorized to do so, otherwise I will refer to them as Jane or John. If you want to ask me a question, follow the link at the bottom of the "Ask Kelly" column.

| ||The OptiFlow® RM is being worn by this month's Noble Heart Fund recipient.
The Noble Heart Fund is designed to help those in need with their night-time compression. When we find a patient who fits the criteria for the Noble Heart Fund, they are provided a night-time compression sleeve either free of cost or at a highly discounted price.
It became apparent to us through the enthusiastic response we received after our eNews featuring the Noble Heart Fund that many of the applicants were on Medicaid and were unaware that Medicaid, in many states, covers ReidSleeve products! We thought we should bring awareness to this topic and give our eNews readers some additional information about coverage with Medicaid.
Peninsula Medical is contracted with many state Medicaid programs and the benefits under these programs cover ReidSleeve products!
If you know someone on Medicaid in any of the following states (maybe even yourself!) and you would like to pursue a compression garment please contact us to get your authorization going.
There are several other states in which Medicaid covers the ReidSleeve, where we have authorized providers we can refer you to. So even if you don't find your state in this list, please contact us so we can hopefully refer you to a contracted Medicaid provider!
