Weather, natural disasters and other uncontrollable events can interrupt shipping/transportation flow –anytime, anywhere and with little warning.


Inclement weather causes hazardous conditions in many regions of the U.S..  This may cause some service delays and disruptions due to closures and canceled mail pickups.   Note that potential service disruptions may not affect Express, Ground, International, Freight, Residential Deliveries, etc. all in the same. This may result in different levels of impact...other variables: which cities, states and ZIP Codes are involved.


To help avoid delays, it is strongly recommended that you purchase your recovery products at least two weeks prior to surgery. This will avoid paying extra for rush shipping charges, nullified returns, or delays in delivery, especially during inclement weather.


We will not be responsible for any shipping delays due to adverse weather conditions.


We ship all packages via FedEx, (or USPS if requested), out of our Pennsylvania warehouse facility. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Customer Care at 800-330-6300 for assistance. Please view the chart below to estimate the time for delivery from our warehouse.


*Please note that the map estimates Ground Shipping time in 'Business Days'. A business day is any weekday that does not observe a holiday. FedEx does not consider the day an order ships out as a day in transit.  They start counting days as the following business day. They also do not ship on certain national holidays, which is not included in their transit times.  In addition, FedEx differentiates between Ground Commercial and Ground Residential packages.  'Business Days' for FedEx are 'Monday through Friday' for Commercial and 'Tuesday through Saturday' for Residential deliveries.  As such, if an order ships out of our warehouse on a Thursday and it is going to North Carolina, which is two business days, the order will arrive on Monday for a Commercial delivery; that same order would arrive Saturday for a Residential delivery.  However, should FedEx take an extra day, the order would arrive Tuesday for the Commercial delivery and not until Tuesday for the Residential delivery because of the difference in 'Business Days.'  We understand that shipping can be confusing.  Should you have any questions regarding ship times, please do not hesitate to contact Customer Care at 800-330-6300 with any questions.

Customs & Additional Shipping Carrier Fees

International orders to some countries may be subject to Customs inspections and fees and/or additional shipping carrier fees (i.e brokerage fees, handling/administrative fees, etc.) based upon each country's policies and the shipping carrier's policies. Medico International, Inc. cannot be responsible for time delays due to these actions nor for reimbursement of any Customs fees or additional shipping carrier fees that may be charged to deliver the package to your country's destination.

For International orders, in case of return or cancellation, Medico International, Inc. will not be responsible for refund discrepancies due to the exchange rate between US Dollars and foreign currency.
