To update your billing address, please call the number on your invoice. It’s important to let us know when your billing address changes to help ensure on-time payments.
Before you start services with us, Coram will check on your insurance and explain the financial arrangements to you. You’ll be asked to sign the Financial Agreement Arrangement (FAA) related to billing and payment for services. The FAA will cover what we expect your insurance will pay and your out-of-pocket costs. You will be responsible for paying any co-payment or deductible amount, and for any service that’s not covered by your insurance.
If you have Medicare insurance, we’ll send you an Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN) that lists items or services that Medicare isn’t expected to pay for. We’ll provide an estimate of the costs for the items/services, and the reasons why Medicare may not pay for them.
When you make a payment, it’s applied to the oldest date of service. If there isn’t any service posted to your account, your payment will go into a hold account until it can be applied to an eligible claim.
Your account balance is shown on your statement. If you have any questions, just contact customer service.
For online payments, we accept VISA, MasterCard®, American Express® or Discover®. If you pay by mail or over the phone, we also accept a copay assistance or drug manufacturer's credit card, checks and money orders.
We'll work to help you find assistance. We can help with guidance on insurance and financial assistance options, including COBRA premiums, co-pay assistance, manufacturer product assistance programs, disability insurance and state programs.

Request your supplies
Reordering your supplies and/or medications is quick and easy! Call us any day, any time. We’re ready to help.
Depending on your specific needs, your first home delivery of supplies could include an infusion pump and pole, medication and other supplies.
Whatever your needs are, you can expect your Coram team to be in frequent contact with you. They’ll help you keep track of the amount of medication and supplies you need for your therapy. Your Clinical Support Specialist will be in touch often to find out what you need and to arrange to have your medication and supplies delivered to your home at a time that is best for you. And, your Clinical Support Specialist will want to know if you need more or less of any supply. You don’t want supplies that you won’t be using taking up space.
You can rely on your team to stay on top of things for you. You can help with that by making sure that you and your Clinical Support Specialist communicate often. Plan on being in touch before each delivery and make time to tell them about your current health status and if you want to talk to a pharmacist about your medication. Let them know how things are going with your home infusion therapy. Nothing is more important to them than hearing from you about how you are doing.
Read the medication label for details on how to handle and store medication.
Refrigerated solutions should be stored at a temperature between 36°F and 46°F. If you can, set aside a space in your refrigerator that is just for your medications/solutions. Solutions should be in a sealed plastic bag if they are stored on a lower refrigerator shelf or beneath food and/or beverages.
For you and your household's safety, remember to keep all medications and supplies out of the reach of children and pets and avoid keeping them alongside household items.
- Store your supplies and formula in a cool, dry place, like a pantry or basement, a cupboard or a closet.
- Cover unused formula and store it in the refrigerator
- Throw unused prepared formula away after 24 hours.
Coram delivers products because they were prescribed by your doctor. Once products have been delivered, they can’t be returned for credit, even if the prescription changed.

These questions may take a few minutes to answer. Remember that these questions are very important for the proper management of your care.
