Patients are Eligible for New Equipment from Medicare every 5 Years

Did you know that under Medicare you are eligible for new DME equipment every 5 years?  Yes, that’s right.  If you had benefits for a wheelchair, walker, cane, power wheelchair or other equipment thru Medicare in 2012 or prior then you are eligible for new equipment under Medicare’s rules.  If your equipment is not 5 years old then you are not eligible for new equipment and will have to wait until you hit the 60 month mark.  If you are not sure when you got your equipment then our staff can check what is on file with Medicare and let you know if and when you become eligible.  The reason is that most medical equipment gets pretty beat up during day to day use and Medicare believes it should last 5 years.  Call us today and we can help get you new equipment from Medicare!
