Document Will I be paid for providing an optional extra for a lymphoedema garment if it has not been specified by the prescriber?

Even though the silicone band is recognised as an optional extra for some of the custom fit lymphoedema garments such as Jobst Elvarex, any optional extras must be specifically ordered by the prescriber otherwise they will not be reimbursed.
You cannot endorse the optional extra; the prescription would have to be returned to the prescriber to be amended.
