How to Obtain Durable Medical Equipment Via Medicare

Durable medical equipment (DME), such as wheelchairs, walkers, portable oxygen devices and hospital beds, can be very expensive — and the process for obtaining them from Medicare can be very confusing. 

Learn about Medicare coverage of DME and get the latest information on obtaining such equipment in a webinar Tuesday, Jan. 29, from 2 to 3 p.m. Eastern time.  

“Medicare Coverage of Durable Medical Equipment” is presented by the Medicare Rights Center and costs $40 to attend. It will cover:

  • when Medicare does and does not pay for medical equipment;
  • what types of equipment are covered;
  • how much of the cost Medicare will cover;
  • buying versus renting equipment;
  • getting medical equipment under Medicare; and
  • appealing a denial of coverage for equipment.

The registration fee covers participation in the webinar or — for those who can't attend the live event — a link to a digital recording of the webinar after it’s complete.

Visit the Medicare Rights Center to register for the webinar or for more information.
